Notes & Reviews:

For superstar classical pianist Lang Lang's first all-Mozart album, he teams up with the perfect conductor, legendary Mozart authority, Nikolaus Harnoncourt. The Mozart Album presents two of Mozart's piano concerti as well as solo pieces, including one of his most popular pieces "Rondo Alla Turca," on two discs. The two piano concerti, Piano Concerto No. 24 in C Minor, K. 491 and Piano Concerto No. 17 in G Major, K. 453, were recorded with Harnoncourt and the Vienna Philharmonic at the Vienna Musikverein. From the solo pieces, the three early piano sonatas, Piano Sonata No. 5 in G Major, K. 283, Piano Sonata No. 4 in E-flat Major, K. 282 and Piano Sonata No. 8 in A Minor, K. 310, have been part of Lang Lang's latest recital which he presented live in more than 200 concerts worldwide. These recordings were captured at his Royal Albert Hall concert in 2013.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
These are two favorite Mozart concertos. They were recorded at real sessions in the Musikvereinssaal. They seem wonderfully in tune with each other, and the tempos are all ideal. I am not at all a fan of the pianist, but I can find no fault with his playing in these concertos. He seems to respond perfectly to both fast and slow movements, with flair and sensitivity. There is no showing off, no banging, no racing past parts that make less of an impression.
