Mozart: Piano Concerto no 17; Concerto for 2 Pianos; Sonata for 2 Pianos / Alfred Brendel & Walter Klein, pianos

Notes & Reviews:

Piano Concerto No. 17 K453 Piano Concerto No. 10 in E flat major for Two Pianos K365 Sonata in D major for two pianos, K.448 Alfred Brendel and Walter Klein (pianos) Vienna State Opera Orchestra, Paul Angerer (conductor) Brendel's Mozart credentials are very much in evidence in these performances. The 17th concerto was highly acclaimed when it first appeared on the Vox label in the 1960s and it is arguable that his collaboration with Walter Klein in recording the concerto and sonata for two pianos has never been surpassed. 'What is at once astonishing and delightful about these performances is that the constant technical problem of ensemble between the two pianos is never allowed to take precedence over the business of music-making. Some of the rival versions of the concerto may in fact keep even more impeccably together, but none presents us with such consistently beautiful - and meaningful - phrasing.' Gramophone of Concerto for Two Pianos
