Notes & Reviews:

Böhm's last concert in Salzburg far removed from any routine, a great Mozart expert here offers a vivid account with the Vienna Philharmonic at ist dazzling best, and in a perfect dialogue with Pollini in the "little" Coronation Concerto.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
This gives us a wonderful look at a conductor from the last century who was a major carrier of the Viennese Mozart tradition. His repertory was very wide. This performance is similar - slow by modern standards. The opening movement is particularly broad. The performance is quite broad, particularly in the Minuet; but the finale is, again, big and exciting. Between the symphonies we hear Concerto 19 (K 459 in F, the last of the 1784 concertos) delicately and crisply played by Pollini, who was then 38. The pianist seems completely onboard with Böhm's style in Mozart; and the performance has a wonderful, intimate, chamber-music feel. There is enjoyment here, particularly in the finale, taken at a pace fast enough for excitement, but still subtle and nicely shaped. The recordings sound good. A valuable reissue and a natural recommendation for fans of the conductor.
