this was pleasant enough to listen to but for me lacked any real feeling in the sense that although it was played well, it lacked any real depth or substance that really caught my attention. Cheap and cheerful but not much more than that!

Great performance of absolutely beautiful pieces 31 Jan 2001
By Timmy - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This CD contains two very significant concertos of Mozart's. The first, K271 in E-flat, may well be considered his first adult concerto. In addition, it is the first concerto to introduce the piano before the orchestral ritornello, a concept to be utilzed by Beethoven in his 4th and 5th piano concertos as well as in Brahms' 2nd piano concerto. It also contains a wonderful and serious minor-key slow movement, reminding me of earlier opera seria. The G-major piano concerto is simply one of Mozart's most beautiful and perfect works, gay and happy from start to finish. It is a concerto whose every movement may be considered a masterpiece, significant in that many of Mozart's concertos have both strong and weak movements. Barenboim is a distinguished pianist and conductor. This CD is a must-have.

Exemplary Musicianship 16 Jan 2011
By Bernard Michael O'Hanlon - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you relish big-boned Mozart being played by world-class musicians who are not afraid to evoke the spirit and letter of these miraculous scores, look no further. This is how Mozart should be played: fierily, poetically and with full expressiveness. It is the complete opposite of the Mozart as promulgated by the Period Practice Nosfertaus whose Salzburg Kid is an anaemic waif who sounds more like Telemann than a composer of his own time.

The soloist is clearly enjoying himself and determined to excel - this is not an example of the Barenboim sausage-machine. There is also buy-in from the Berlin Philharmonic; the articulation of the strings, say, at 5'33"ff in the finale of the G Major, has to be heard to be believed. Instances of excellence abound. Much the same could be said of the recording.

Einstein said that K 271 was Mozart's first masterpiece. Whatever the veracity of such a claim might be, it is easy to believe on the strength of this leonine performance. The desolation of the slow movement is unerringly captured. How does a 21 year old come to such gnosis?

Enough. Just buy it.
