5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Mozart concerti 5 Mar 2007
By Sid Nuncius HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I don't think this series of three discs by Mitsuko Uchida and the ECO can be bettered. I have enthused about her Complete Mozart Piano Sonatas and the Concerti are just as good. Uchida has a real empathy with Mozart, I think, and you get the sense of love and joy in the music combined with magnificent musicianship.

She is crisp and sensitive in the quicker outer movements and has the power when needed to play as the orchestra's equal. In the slow movements Uchida's beautiful tone is a joy and she judges the mood perfectly, making them truly beautiful without a hint of sentimentality or Mozartkugel-flavoured kitsch. This is not easy in such over-exposed movements as the Andante of K467, for example, but she is absolutely exemplary in her empathy and restraint.

The English Chamber Orchestra are ideal in this repertoire. It is no coincidence that both Uchida and the great Murray Perahia chose them for their Mozart recordings. The orchestra - here under Jeffrey Tate - are vigorous, supple and responsive and again avoid any intrusion of the saccharine nonsense which mars some Mozart performances. You can almost hear the collective grins of the orchestra during some of Mozart's more outrageous show-off finales, and there is a fabulous understanding between them and Uchida who worked with the ECO a lot.

It seems to me that the only close competitor to this series is Murray Perahia's Complete Mozart Piano Concerti (also with the ECO) which are equally good, but weigh in at well over £60. And it's worth saying that on Radio 3's Building A Library, the reviewer said that he couldn't imagine even Mozart playing Mozart more beautifully than Murray Perahia, but still chose Uchida's recording of the Jeunehomme Concerto (K271, on this volume) as the best available.

By I. Giles HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a very desirable double set taken from the whole series well recorded between 1986-90. The only presentational snag which may irritate some listeners more than others is that in most of the discs such as this one, there is one concerto split between the two discs.

Having said all of that I personally find this to be one of the two most rewarding sets available at this time. My absolute favourite is the Murray Perahia set which seems to get just about everything right but the recorded sound does not match this later set. Another advantage of Uchida's survey is the conducting of Jeffrey Tate who brings out all sorts of relevant detail. This is especially true of the important woodwind answering phrases, and which so often remain in the relative background when the pianist does without a conductor.

Uchida's interpretations tend to be a little more forthright than Perahia, possibly as a result of the stronger orchestral presence provided by Tate. There is certainly more character in the orchestral contribution than that provided for Brendel by Marriner for example. Uchida is also a touch more 'romantic' or expressive in terms of interpretation than Perahia who is scrupulously 'classical' in feel.

Without wishing to be controversial or trite, I would suggest that Uchida seems to illustrate Mozart's masculine side but seen from the female point of view. Perahia, by contrast, seems to illustrate Mozart's feminine side but seen from a male point of view. These are subtle distinctions that are not as contradictory as may seem when given some consideration!

Overall this is a most attractive package and should give much pleasure provided that you can cope with the concerto split between discs and the non-chronological content.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mitsuko Uschida 7 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD
For me, no-one can do Mozart justice other than this lady.
The whole CD has to be heard and can compare with anything else on the market.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sloppy work. Could be improved. 19 Mar 2011
By Antoine
Format:Audio CD
As other reviewers note, these three double CDs are very good recordings by a fine pianist, but they will be spoiled for some listeners because one has to "turn over" the CD to another, LP-style, to hear the complete performance. Had I been aware of this immediately, I might have returned them, despite the low price. One of the advantages of CDs surely, is the ability to hear a complete work without interruption, apart from the short pause between movements.
VERY sloppy, Philips/Decca!
