Notes & Reviews:

For nearly six decades, Paul Badura-Skoda has been an acclaimed advocate of piano works from the Classical and early Romantic era on both modern and period instruments. He has performed and recorded Mozart concertos with such legendary musicians as Furtwangler, Karajan, Scherchen, Krips and Kubelik. In this new Transart recording, he directs the Prague Chamber Orchestra from the keyboard.

Paul Badura-Skoda is one of the most important pianists of our time. A legendary artist who has been heard in the world's greatest concert halls, his musical personality is characterized by complete immersion in music, a passionate search for the essential, and a sense of artistic responsibility. It soon becomes evident to any listener that he loves music with every part of his being. Badura-Skoda has recorded a vast repertoire-more than 200 LPs and dozens of CDs including the complete cycles of the piano sonatas of Mozart, Beethoven, and Schubert. He performs with equal authority on both period and modern instruments, and was a pioneer in proposing the use of period pianos in performance. His profound knowledge of instruments, from the time of Bach & Mozart up to the present, has given him the capacity to extract a quality of sound that never fails to amaze audiences and critics alike.

"[Plays] with power, remarkable fluidity, and unerring musicianship." - Washington Post
