5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent but not a complete collection of Mozart works for piano and orchestra, 24 April 2011
This review is from: Mozart: The Piano Concertos (DG Collectors Edition) (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.
