Notes & Reviews:
" ... this is as idiomatic and as deeply Mozartian a reading of the work as any in the catalogue. ... the performance itself, which is euphonious to a degree and falls more sweetly and lovingly on the ear than any I can recall. ... All this gives Christie opportunities to shape the work subtly and sensitively ... Taken overall, the performance is quick and light-textured - and often quite dramatic. ..Another strength lies in the shaping, cool and unselfconscious, of the two extended finales ... These light and soft textures and graceful phrasing are what above all characterize this recording." - GramophoneNotes & Reviews:
