Notes & Reviews:

Six piano concertos in a mere twelve months: 1784 was a most productive year for piano concertos for Mozart. Christian Zacharias and the Lausanne Chamber Orchestra have spent more time and research with their interpretations of Mozart's piano concertos - and with sensational results. The complete recordings of Mozart's Piano Concertos by Zacharias promises to occupy the top ranks on international lists: Zacharias is able perfectly and seamlessly to transfer his inimitable touch and sound culture to the orchestra.

Gramophone Magazine
A "dream world" is how Arthur Hutchings described the Andante of K467. Christian Zacharias begs to differ, the time signature alla breve dictating a fleeter pace than usually heard. Muted strings still underline the harmonic shadows but there is no lingering.

New York Times
His entrances seem especially organic in these crisp, unsentimental readings. The Lausanne players are remarkably precise.
