Customer Review

on 15 July 2012
Superlatives all over? If my view is based on disagreement just for disagreements sake, or not, or biased by the some dozen+ or so cycles of Mozart Pno Cti I have heard I cannot say; polished, maybe technically OK but lacking the quality that makes the music sing and engage. I've playd the discs through and through and at the darkest moments I just could't remember any expression worth mentioning. Maybe these concertos should be played expressiveless (or with somewhat forced expression), precise (with some exceptions for the winds obviously) with strings like it was programmed as a midi-file, but I think not. It's a kind of wound-up encyclopaedic cycle, and not the "Entdeckungsreise" a full Mozart cycle ought to be, something to experience anew with (almost) every session, even though the music is so familiar. I won't scrap these readings/recordings, but I'd stick to Gardiner/Bilson, or Immerseel, and maybe even Sconderwoerds rather ... strange? series to-be when it comes to period practices; Kirschnereit, Brendel or Perahia or even an "youthful oldie" like Anda. It's not completely garbage, mind, but it just lacks that something, in MY opinion.
