Format: Audio CD
I have these recordings but in an earlier edition, which I cannot find on here and it may or may not be important. These recordings dating from the 80's, beginning with the fifth piano concerto, find Zacharias and his diverse orchestras and conductors in fine form. I remember attending a live concert in the early 80s in which a youthful Zacharias entranced this then youthful audience member with a beautiful performance of the twenty fifth piano concerto.

That concert experience led me to buy several of this series as it was first issued on LP and I was delighted to replace on CD, but this brings me to the reason for withholding the final star and that is just to sound a note of caution about the third movement of the twentieth piano concerto. At 5.06 there is what sounds to be bad splicing error in which alien chords sounding from an ancient Don Giovanni recording intrude. I never had this reading on LP and don't know if it was there from the start. Personally, I have always ascribed this to a technical cock up in the studio remastering rooms as I cannot understand why else it would be there. For years I tried alternative reissues of this recording of the twentieth to no avail and it remains on the downloads that I have heard. Maybe this release has been finally corrected. I believe it is a technical mistake and if it has been corrected I would be delighted to know this. However, I once emailed EMI to find out if a corrected release was available and received the reply that this was no mistake but intended as the soloist was wanting to draw a parallel between the concerto and the opera. I still find this hard to believe, and, sadly if it is true, then I simply find it an irritating distraction which rules this otherwise very fine performance of this concerto out of court for me.

This is by no means the only desirable super-bargain box set of Mozart piano concertos on the market - I am also fond of the the Brilliant set with Derek Han - and there are those who cannot stomach Zacharias's quirky insertion of the blazing, orchestral D minor chord, spliced in to introduce the cadenza in the final movement of K466, but otherwise it offers all the virtues of the best, most vivacious and sensitive Mozart playing.

It is not apparently a homogeneous entity as such, the concertos being compiled from recordings made with four conductors and six different orchestras between 1981 and 1990 and the items on the last and ninth CD, featuring the two concertos and sonata for two pianos were recorded in 1995, but the effect is by no means jarring and of course Zacharias's masterly pianism is common to every one. Such crisp, light, life-enhancing playing is its own recommendation. My fellow-reviewer B'OH is right to recommend anyone interested to start with K537, which does indeed have a joyous lift and whose roulades have an extraordinarily precise regularity suggestive of a celestial music-box. To underline that effect, the sound of a real music-box is replicated by a glockenspiel towards the end of the first movement, in another audacious innovation. 21 exquisitely performed concertos plus the ninth duos disc for absurdly little outlay from an unaccountably neglected artist accompanied by some big name conductors and celebrated orchestras: don't hesitate.

Much like the Queen of Spades winking at Pushkin's Hermann, every time Christian Zacharias sees the letter B, the poor bugger must think to himself (fairly or otherwise): "That's it. It's been decided. That's my placement in the scheme of things - a B-grader."

Few reviews come his way on `Zon. the Penguin Guide ignores him pe se. He personifies Terra Incognita. When will someone review his Beethoven or Schubert cycles? What does the poor bugger have to do? Channel Liberace with his candelabras? Have sex with his piano? Develop a Stealth-Steinway or a drone-piloted Bosendorfer?

Happily, redress is at hand.

When it comes to this repertoire, I am more jaded than the throne of the Dragon-Emperor. I love this hybrid cycle: how amateurish that sounds but it is the truth. How fresh it is - like these miraculous works are hot off the press! Having owned the LPs, I cannot believe that I have gone without these performances for so long (his K 449 & K 414 excepted which I have retained over the years). Yesterday, I thrice listened to the Coronation - no mean feat in itself (and in passing, what a cadenza to the first movement - Zacharias transforms the piano into a music-box). If you purchase this set, start with K 537 - kapow!

Zacharias plays with plenty of personality but is no show pony. Every phrase sparkles with light and life. His ornamentation is astute. The accompaniment of the left-hand is more prominent than with his competitors - it's good to hear it for a change. He does not eclipse the likes of Edwin Fischer - the Lion's Velvet Paw - or Gilels in K 595 but it does not matter. Taken as a whole, this cycle is more of an upper than any pill from Doctor Roberts.
