Notes & Reviews:

"Magic moments abound Haromonia Mundi's release reserves a glowing recommendation. Here's a Mozart-year offering that shouldn't become less beguiling, even by the next celebration in 2041." -Fanfare

Gramophone Magazine
Andrew Manze... gives performances that for inventiveness, impish fun and close, conspiratorial rapport between soloist and orchestral have never been bettered. Huggett's fresh, buoyant performances have long been the prime period-instrument recommendation. But the palm now goes to Manze, in symbiotic partnership with the superb English Concert and beautifully recorded by Harmonia Mundi.

bbc.co.uk - Andrew McGregor
The romantic varnish we're so used to hearing is stripped away to reveal the original glowing more brightly, communicating with more immediacy. It's as though we've been being held at arm's length, and now suddenly Mozart reaches out and embraces us...I've never heard the so-called Turkish finale of the A major Concerto played with such an irresistibly earthy passion

BBC Music Magazine
Spontaneity shines through the thoughtful preparation, especially in Manze's cadenzas, which are perfectly judged stylistically, and where every note counts. And the different characters of each of the episodes in the rondo finales, with their changes of tempo and mood, are sharply caught. A wonderful contribution to Mozart Year.
