Geza Anda was probably the first pianist/conductor of Mozart who chose to use a chamber-size orchestra. The results were, and still are, revelatory - you can always hear the delightful orchestral details, and for all of Anda's warmth and involvement, it's Mozart who is always allowed to speak unhindered. Where there are no cadenzas of Mozart's extant, Anda uses his own, and that of the finale of Concerto 22 is delightful. I bought the set just to hear that again, as I did years ago on vinyl.

Thank heavens DG have reissued Anda's complete recordings of the Mozart piano concertos. Where Uchida is delicate, and Brendel dull, Anda's Mozart is warm, vital and passionate. This is a Mozart that will fill your heart as well as your mind.

Thank heavens someone at Deutsche Grammophon has had the wit to re-master and re-release these great performances. Anda seems in danger of being forgotten but these performances are possibly the finest interpretations of Mozart's concertos and deserve to always be available to remind us of how great a pianist and interpreter Anda truly was. Indescribably beautiful with excellent re-mastered sound... Even if you have other versions (and newer) you should not be without these!

Format: Audio CD
I absolutely agree with the other positive reviews and I find this collection of Mozart piano concertos totally satisfying: excellent performances from both the pianist and the orchestra, a consistently beautiful exploration of these Mozart masterpieces through joyful, passionate, delicate and sensual moments, interpreted in a fluent and lively manner. The quality of these recordings is quite good with a natural and adequately detailed sound (recordings made between 1961 and 1969 really not showing their age aside some tape hiss during the more quite passages).

I also have the 10-CD set of Mozart Piano concertos featuring Vladimir Ashkenazy (Decca), selected concertos by Alfred Brendel with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra directed by Charles Mackerras (Philips), and the stirring interpretation of #15 by Leonard Bernstein with the Wiener Philharmoniker (Decca Legends). Although I think the Ashkenazy set is great and the Brendel readings beautiful, I find this Anda collection more enjoyable, moving, and truly Mozart. I believe that only Bernstein could have competed in terms of musicality with Anda, had he devoted himself to the Mozart piano concertos.

Just be aware that this set, differently from the ones featuring Ashkenazy or Brendel-Marriner, does not include Concerto for 3 Pianos and Orchestra (No.7) in F, K.242, Concerto for 2 Pianos and Orchestra (No.10) in E flat, K.365, Concert Rondo for Piano and Orchestra in D. K.382, and Rondo for Piano and Orchestra in A, K.386.

To someone accustomed to listening to the tricky elaborate technical renditions of Mozart that are now fashionable, the performances on this set of discs are simply revelatory. Since his death in 1976 Anda's reputation has been eclipsed. Yet the simple performances he produced far out-distance some of the fussier later interpretations that have achieved prominence in recent years by names better known contemporarily. If you want to be transported -- stopped in your tracks even -- just listen to how he plays, completely without artifice, the Second Movement of the 11th Concerto.......
