THE JOURNAL, November 1990

Jandó, with Concentus Hungarious under Andras Ligeti, has begun a complete Mozart Piano Concerto cycle, and the first two issues could not be more encouraging. He points rhythms delectably to make such movements as the finale of K.271 in E flat as exhilarating as I have ever known it, hectically fast but never breathless. Though Jandó's readings may not have the individuality of a Brendel or a Barenboim, they have a concertration and freshness which, never distracting you from Beethoven, is equally satisfying. They also have fuller, more faithful sound.

Gramophone, October 1990

Finer than many full-price versions ... excellent digital sound ... astonishingly cheap.

BBC Music Magazine

"the catalogue abounds in first-rate accounts of K467 - Barenboim, Brendel, Perahia, Schiff, Serkin and Uchida just for starters - yet none has given me more immediate pleasure than this one"

Penguin Guide

"this is altogether an excellent disc"

BBC Radio 3

Mozart piano concertos, are thick on the ground with the lovely bargain basement Naxos series scoring highly.
