Notes & Reviews:

Gottlieb Wallisch, who has captivated audiences from many of the world's major concert platforms, impressed the critics with his superb interpretations of Mozart's Viennese repertoire. His second solo album on Linn further explores Mozart's rich piano repertoire of works associated with Paris and Vienna, many of which raised the standard for technical virtuosity. Gottlieb participated in the international cycle "Rising Stars" and gave solo recitals in Musikverein Vienna, Konzerthus-Stockholm, Societé Philharmonique in Brussels, the Athens Concert Hall and Carnegie Hall, New York. Numerous concert tours have also led him to Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Spain, Germany and Switzerland.

There is plenty to appreciate on this disc, not least the sheer simple grace of his expression. The Allegro in B Flat Major K400 is a delightful display of gentle exuberance, and movements such as K330's "Andante Cantabile" and the Adagio in B Minor K540 show that he is equally capable of quiet profundity.

American Record Guide, November/December 2012
The sound quality has the right amount of ambience for Mozart, so the sound is never dry. I wish the program notes had explained more about Mozart's relationship to Paris. Most of these pieces originated in Vienna (musicologists have shown that the three Paris sonatas, two of which appear here, were actually composed in Vienna). Nevertheless, I enjoyed Wallisch's clear approach to the standard repertoire, and the hidden gems he chose to record are lovely.
