MusicWeb International, July 2016

…these are remarkably fine recordings, both in terms of the exceptionally good balance that has been achieved between soloist and orchestra, and of the welcome absence of surface noise. The orchestral playing is of a very high standard…

…[Clara Haskil’s] playing is a joy, and these are wonderful recordings… © 2016 MusicWeb International Read complete review

Lynn René Bayley
The Art Music Lounge, May 2016

…the performances are absolutely gorgeous. Haskil was a fairly straightforward pianist, …But she had a wonderfully strong approach to playing and way of slightly pressing the tempo forward that works wonders in Mozart.

But the real reason for my delight in these performances is the sympathetic conducting of Schuricht. Never before, in my experience, have I heard a better combination of conductor and soloists in any Mozart concerto, …It’s not just a matter of warmth, although these performances certainly have that; it’s more a matter of understanding every note in every single bar, and of conveying not only the underlying structure of the music but also the melos. © 2016 The Art Music Lounge | An Online Journal of Jazz and Classical Music Read complete review
