Torn between joy and sadness
on 16 February 2014
It's very hard to write anything like an objective review of this CD, as it is only last month that Abbado passed away - but even despite that, this is very very special music-making. The peerless interpretations, the amazing clarity and sensitivity of the playing (from soloist and orchestra) and the infectious sense of JOY in engaging with two of Mozart's greatest piano concerti (and in K466, some would argue, the greatest) swept me away entirely...and it was only as the breathtaking and exhilarating end of K466 arrived, and the applause and cheering began, that I remembered that Abbado is no longer with us... This is a worthy memorial.
