Notes & Reviews:

The Orchestra di Padova e del Veneto is currently one of the most renowned chamber orchestras in Italy. Since its conception in 1966, the orchestra has collaborated with the most prestigious international artists, such as Martha Argerich, V. Ashkenazy, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Sviatoslav Richter and K. Zimerman. Mozart composed these 3 concerts between the summer of 1782 and the beginning of 1783 for his own use.

BBC Music Magazine
[Bacchetti] shows himself to be fully able to converse, as it were, with the admirable Orchestra of Padua and the Veneto; and Carlo Goldstein, their conductor, ensures they respond to his elegant eloquence with equal warmth and sensitivity. Mozart's k415 is, for me, the finest of these works, and I have never heard a performance that so completely realises its charm without attempting to import any spurious grandeur.

Gramophone Magazine
Andrea Bacchetti is a pianist possessed of poise and elegance, attributes mirrored by the orchestra di Padova e del Veneto and conductor Carlo Goldstein. These are performances that can't be faulted in terms of taste; yet they don't ignite the music...There are times when the players sound a touch deliberate in tempo and nuance, lacking a degree of carefree joy.

International Record Review
Bacchetti is a very persuasive pianist, and a stylish Mozartian too. He plays with a clean tough, beautiful legato, subtle pedalling, immaculately even passagework, and his interpretations are notably devoid of any eccentricities and idiosyncracies. These are historically informed readings but without losing any of the richness of colour and dynamics afforded by the modern grand.

MusicWeb International
The performances are all very attractive: full of sprightly energy and witty inflection, and expressively phrased without mannered excess...I like the sonic texture set up by the orchestra, which has a decently rich-toned bass and plenty of bounce and refinement. [Bacchetti] is the star of the show...He doesn't go overboard with unconventional ornamentation or artificial impositions of character, keeping to the text of each concerto and bringing the notes to elegant life.
