Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mozart: Complete Solo Piano Concertos (The Voxbox Edition) (MP3 Download)
If you are starting to collect Mozart piano concertos, or if you already have many recordings of these unsurpassed masterpieces, this is a worthwhile and fascinating purchase. When these performances first appeared Gramophone reviewers might be a bit snooty about recorded quality, but with modern technology this is less of an issue. The one thing that is not an issue is the quality and musicality of the piano playing, the names of the artists are your guarantee. I haven't yet had time to play everything, but would be confident that there won't be a single dud. Vox boxes always represented good value for money, and this collection more than keeps up that tradition. Just a word about Mozart: Miraculous. To quote Pope Benedict : 'Mozart's music is so luminous and at the same time so deep. His music is by no means just entertainment; it contains the the whole tragedy of human existence.' As an Ulster Protestant I can only agree. But then Benedict's favourite composers were a Lutheran and a Freemason.
