By John Austin HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 28 April 2002
Mozart's piano concertos occupy a very special place amongst his works. Circumstances enabled him to become regarded in Vienna as composer and performer when he presented twelve of the later concertos to an appreciative audience in Vienna in the 1780s. His letters reveal how personal and important these works were to him. The piano concertos also show how he could imbue a musical form with a depth and a breadth that no one before, and few since, has encompassed.
EMI invited Daniel Barenboim to record the complete series, with the English Chamber Orchestra, as conductor and soloist. The recordings were made at London's Abbey Road Studios between 1967 and 1974. In CD form, in a little box that will occupy only the width of an average size book on you shelf, the performances were re-released, sounding warm, natural and detailed, in 1998. All the solo piano concertos are here, together with two rondos for piano and orchestra.
Other pianists might produce a better effect here or there, or provide different inflections and nuances that are appropriate, but Barenboim's interpretations seem to me to be totally satisfying. He uses what Mozart cadenzas have survived and elsewhere provides either his own or those written by creative keyboard players of an earlier generation such as Edwin Fischer and Wanda Landowska.
Recordings have not yet been able to capture the spatial dynamics that seems so magical at an actual performance of a Mozart piano concerto. You can't yet hear and see when only the wind section of the orchestra is playing, or that the trumpet is announcing from the back of the stage that the D Minor Concerto is about to finish. Meanwhile, recordings such as this will help keep great music alive in your head and your home.

If you want an honest, straigtforward yet beautifully played account of these lovely works then you won't go far wrong with this set. And such good value for money too!

Barenboim's legendary cycle recorded in the 1960's and 70's, both soloist and conducting the English Chamber orchestra. Which was, and still is, a superb Mozart orchestra. And Barenboim being one of the best exponents of Mozart and Beethoven I've heard.

Barenboim never rushes these works. Giving breadth, structure and feeling to all of them. Infact he slows right down in some of the slow movements. (I love the very slow tempo of second movement of PC No.21 for example).

Recordings are clear and honest. With good balance between Orchestra and Soloist. Shame the works are not laid out in compositional order on the discs though. And also no sleeve notes on Barenboim- which is surprising as he was, and still is such a prominent musical artist.

All-in all, a great package and worth getting...

This set is beautifully performed and is also priced competitively. I am very satisfied with my purchase, though I'm sorry it doesn't include the concertos for 2 and 3 pianos.
Barenboim's own cadenzas are enjoyable. I don't notice any lack of maturity in the playing, but this may be my inexperience!
Some prefer Ashkenazy, but it is quite a bit more expensive [though it does include those works just mentioned].
I am confident most readers will be very happy with this set.
Highly recommended

I bought this set in 2004 and together with Barenboim's set of Beethoven's Piano Sonatas (by the same label) it is still among my favourite classical recordings, despite experimenting with other recordings of these works over the years.
Barenboim never seems to show off or go "over the top", and captures the spirit of these pieces perfectly. The recording of the 20th in D Minor (one of my favourite works and my favourite Mozart concerto) is particularly excellent, with real power in the first movement (that I've not yet found matched or bettered in any other recording of this work) contrasts with serene beauty in the second.
The sound quality is excellent with the perfect balance of volume between the piano and orchestra. Barenboim's playing is as ever crisp, clear and never rushed.
I've also heard some of Barenboim's later recordings of these concertos and must say that although they are also very good they lack something that is present here. I would definitely recommend these older recordings over the newer.

As for the music itself, well it's Mozart, and the Piano Concerto was for Mozart what the Symphony was to Beethoven - something special and something he did better than most.

This is the only set of these Concertos you will ever need.

By A Customer on 27 Sept. 2004
The importance of Mozart's Piano Concertos to the Classical era is well known, and in this case, perhaps too well known. Barenboim tries very hard to make the performances musical, and this can be heard very clearly.
He does not place enough faith in Mozart as a composer to include all the required flourishes. This leaves the music feeling stressed and cluttered. There are also times when Barenboim seems reluctant to flow with the orchestra, playing a staccato left-hand where most other performers would play smoothly and softly. Some may say it is these strange choices that distinguish this recording. Truthfully, it spoils it.
However, there are moments when we hear exactly why Barenboim is such a respected pianist. And it is these triumphs that make up for the detail lost in his playing.
Overall, the quality of performance is inconsistent, but Barenboim does give something to the music that other performers are too scared to do. It is also nice that many of Mozart's original cadenza's are included.
I recommend Derek Han's recording, as it provides a good balance of faith and originality.
