K 467 and K 482 are among Mozart's most imperious creations. The opening movement of the latter was rattling around in Beethoven's head when he composed the Emperor Concerto and one could argue that he did not surpass his old teacher. K 467 is a liturgy for those who revel in the cosmic pomp and circumstance of C Major.

While I have yet to hear the Ingrid Haebler performances of these works, they cannot be any more ladylike than the offerings in scope. Alas for one and all, Annie Fischer tiptoes her way through the opening movements of each work and in doing so she is abetted by that `serial deflater of tyres', Wolfgang Sawallisch. Fischer can clearly play and she has a distinctive palette all of her own; if the failure is not technical it must be temperamental. In comparison, Uchida pounces jaguar-like on the opening movement of K 482 and dismembers it with éclat (Mozart: Piano Concerti 22 & 23. Bishop Kovacevich is also more unbuttoned, heroic and boisterous in K 467 (Mozart: Piano Concertos No. 21, K.467 & No. 25, K.503. The slow movements are more successful; here Fischer's lyricism is aligned with Mozart's poetics - but mundanity returns with the finales of each works; where sky-rockets are required, penny-bungers are delivered. The Philharmonia plays well enough but the overall effect is anonymous; the clarinet and horns - so important in K 482 - are pallid compared with the Uchida / Tate / ECO performance.

All in all, I was genuinely disappointed by this disc. For all the hype, it's a Handbagger job as they say in Australian Rules.

It speaks for itself when a vintage recording can sell again on cd. I purchased these recordings many years ago to play on my old record player, I have bought numerous recordings of all the late Mozart piano concertos and yet still return to classic vintage recordings like these.
