Mozart: Concertos, K242, K365 & K466
The reader should be aware that Amazon has decided that this review which was written for the DECCA edition - (and still appears on that Decca edition) fits into the presently Eloquence series of the same works;
And while I was enthusiastic about the Decca edition, I would caution anyone to avoid the Eloquence edition on grounds that it does not have the same sonic magnificence exhibited by the original Decca edition.
Moreover:
The advertiser of this Eloquence edition does not made it clear if it is an AMSI processed Eloquence (Berliner, German torture-process that distorts and kills the purity of sound - written and elaborated upon on another of my reviews...)

SO -
THE REVIEW AT HAND IS FOR THE DECCA EDITION AND NOT FOR THE ELOQUENCE RE-MAKE.
Note that the DECCA edition is five stars (*****) while the Eloquence re-make is only two stars.

Here it goes:
This (DECCA) might just be one of the most intriguing of all of the Mozart multi-pianos concertos on record.

Here we have a rare collaboration not found on any other recording between George Solti and Daniel Barenboim, where the two conductors face each other playing the concerto for two pianos K.365; the conducting of the English Camber Orchestra from the piano on this Decca recording is at the hands of George Solti.

On a previous (EMI) ADD recording it was Barenboim conducting this same orchestra from the piano, and on another Mozart multi-piano concertos, ADD Decca recording with Barenboim and Ashkenazy, it was Barenboim who conducted the ECO from the piano.

The concerto for three pianos K.

I still had these on LP and thought it was about time I replaced them. They are some of my favourite works by Mozart, being performed by three of the greatest pianists.

HASH(0x8efc04e0) out of 5 stars Incredible 27 Aug. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I am posting the first review for this CD -- I am very surprised that more people were not inspired to comment on it, and hope that I can direct some attention to this masterwork. Solti, best known as a conductor, was an equally great pianist, and won the Geneva Competition in 1942. His piano recordings are rare, but worth seeking out. On his disk, Solti is joined by Daniel Barenboim and Andras Schiff, who need no further introduction as interpreters of Mozart. The result is remarkable.

HASH(0x8ba9d03c) out of 5 stars A gem by Decca: a multi-piano concertos with Solti/Barenboim/Schiff 4 Jan. 2012
By Judy Spotheim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This might just be one of the most intriguing of all of the Mozart multi-pianos concertos on record.

Here we have a rare collaboration not found on any other recording between George Solti and Daniel Barenboim, where the two conductors face each other playing the concerto for two pianos K.365; the conducting of the English Camber Orchestra from the piano on this Decca recording is at the hands of George Solti.

On a previous (EMI) ADD recording it was Barenboim conducting this same orchestra from the piano, and on another Mozart multi-piano concertos, ADD Decca recording with Barenboim and Ashkenazy, it was Barenboim who conducted the ECO from the piano.

The concerto for three pianos K. 242 on this CD, has Andras Schiff, Barenboim & Solti who here too, is conducting the orchestra from the piano.
And the Piano concerto No. 20 K. 466 for single piano features George Solti as the solo pianist conducting from the piano sit.
Technically this Piano concerto is less demanding than other Mozart late concertos.
However, this Decca version of PC 20 has that "dramatic", that purpose and concentration with depth of feeling and sadness - it is the simplicity of greatness, or the greatness of the simplicity of music making that is gloriously captured here, with full piano body tone and lucid decay time - a masterpiece made possible by the Decca recording team headed by Stan Goodall. (The recording was made in 1989 at the Walthamstow Town Hall, London).

This superb Mozart multi-piano concertos with Solti, Barenboim and Schiff - should be grabbed and hold close and dear to the heart. It is a gem and no less than that.

HASH(0x8af7b72c) out of 5 stars Three Great Mozart Performances 3 Oct. 2008
By Herbert Winter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
A great performance of the favorite D-minor concerto with Georg Solti conducting the English Chamber Orchestra from the piano, joined by Daniel Bairenboim for the beautiful and seldom heard concerto for two pianos, both joined by Andras Schiff for the early, pleasant and even more seldom heard concerto for three pianos. A nice combination of the well-known and not so well known, all played to perfection.

HASH(0x8b06a1c8) out of 5 stars very good #7 and 10, more problematic #20 16 Mar. 2014
By Jon Miller ('Kirk') - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The multi piano concerti are enjoyable, unrushed and well articulated. #7 fares a bit better, perhaps since it sounds more relaxed and the competition in #10 is so daunting: Haebler/Hoffmann/Gailliera; Rudolf and Peter Serkin/Schneider, Haskil/Anda/Galliera; Seemann/Foldes/Lehmann; Cooper/Brendel/Marriner. There is also much to
like in Solti's #20: conducting is precise and unrushed and the ECO is excellent in all three concerti. Problems
in the Romanze hurt however (and definitely may not bother others. #1-ornamentation in the cantilena I find
intrusive and unwarranted. #2 the storm in mid Romanze sounds more dainty and elegant (i.e. un-Soltiesque) than stormy/passionate/angry.

Peers in #20: Haskil/Markevitch/Philips, Goode/Orpheus/Nonesuch, Larrocha/Davis/RCA, Serkin/Szell/Sony; Kovacevich/Davis/Philips; Moravec/Marriner; Annie Fischer/EMI and Hungaraton; Haebler/Galliers/Philips
HASH(0x8af7b444) out of 5 stars Album cover has changed - but Excellent 10 Dec. 2014
By RLB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The D minor concerto performance is why I purchased this disc, beautifully recorded on DECCA (actually my copy is London, but no matter). The K242 (3 pianos) and K 365 (2 pianos) are delightful. The D minor K466 (#20) - Mozarts only minor key Piano Concerto, on OTHER recordings suffers from, sloppy keyboard phrasing, poor fingering, "blasty" ensemble with uneven acoustic output, the winds get too rambunctious and the ear is punished through lack of detail. As is quite welcome, on this disc, we get a sublime, measured, detailed, brooding D minor. No tempo is pushed, no piano playing treated like a rondo burlesque. Instead the wide soundstage sonic profile (if your system is up to it) reveals plentiful detail in a not pretending to be "period practice" soundstage. Modern instruments are robust, lonely, syncopated, well tuned, powerful even. A fully modern instruments effort, the sound is full, the piano keyboarding is as good as one will find. Two recordings I despise: Maria Joćo Pires w/Claudio Abbado (Mozart Orch) for the lifeless keyboard performance utterly lacking in any tension and thrill on DG. Also disliked: Jan Lisiecki with Christian Zacharias (conducting) and the Bavarian Sym Orch - also on DG - played in a mannered, stiff, "tinkly" method, like a teenage recital. Very bright recording. If either of those performances appeal, the English Chamber Orchestra disc with Solti, Barenboim and Schiff is very opposite in tonal recording and keyboarding.
