The performances on this 12 disc set have been praised since they were orginally issued in the late 1970s and through the 1980s. I have other complete sets and individual discs of these works, and I find myself returning to Perahia as my favorites. He has astounding tone and sense of rhythm, and the English Chamber Orchestra is in lock step with him throughout I am sure in part due to the fact that Perahia conducted them from the keyboard.

What makes this 2006 reissue even more special? First, Sony remastered all of the recordings using their Direct Stream Digital process and SBM direct. What this means is that the sound sparkles with a realism that was lacking before. In addition, the set is packaged in sturdy envelopes and a cardboard case that takes a little over an inch of shelf space. It saves you money, and takes up much less space that traditional jewel case require.

A legendary set, with recent technical improvements, at a great price.

Highest of recommendations!

I have owned Murray Perahia's Mozart: The Complete Piano Concertos in all of its incarnations: audio cassette, lps, individual cds ,1991 box set and now this, the definitive release of these legendary performances-the 2006 DSD(Direct Stream Digital) remastered collection. The reputation of Perahia and the ECO in the Mozart piano concertos is almost without peer. Indeed, there are many fine sets available that come close, including Uchida, Anda, Barenboim, Bilson, etc. (many of which I've heard and/or owned,) but the Perahia 2006 set is truly the finest. The sound is brilliantly new & clear on this remastered set, now available at half what the 1991 set cost when it was first released. Perahia has a special bond with these works, very much like Artur Rubinstein has with the music of Chopin, Zoltan Kocsis has with the music of Bartok & Debussy and Georges Cziffra has with the music of Franz Liszt. It is quite apparent that the Mozart piano concertos touch Murray Perahia to the depths of his artistic soul, stunningly shown here on this latest complete box set.
My wife recently asked me if I could keep only one release from my extensive classical cd collection ( numbering in the neighborhood of 2000 discs to date,)what would it be. There is no doubt-this Mozart set from Perahia is the one! It would be among the absolute crown jewels of any good music collection.

I don't usually post reviews here on amazon but this set deserves an exception. I shopped very carefully to find the "best" of the complete sets (shelling out $80 requires some attention to detail). After reading various reviews and sampling every recording I could find, I purchased this set.

Before I begin, I should say I don't believe that any performance of classical music is "definitive." There are good recordings and bad recordings, yes, but among the good ones, it is often difficult to decide which is the "best." I usually aim for an excellent sound coupled with a solid and moving interpretation of the work. For Mozart's piano concertos, there are several sets which contain both, with the individual recordings varying in the finer things.

For this particular performance, Perahia is all about tone, and keeping it perfect. Some may criticize this set for sounding "all the same" or lacking in variation, but this does not bore me or present much of a problem. When its played as beautifully as this one can never have too much. Still, if you are looking for a little more interpretation to "jazz up" the recordings, Brendel's set may be for you. I prefer this less romantic venture which focuses solely on the music. When I listen to one of these concertos I don't feel that I hear Murray Perahia playing, because he doesn't embellish or add anything. He just makes the music sing beautifully, and though I never like seeing the words "this is how the composer would have played it" (especially on Chopin reviews) I often feel that I'm hearing Mozart himself joyously run along the keys while conducting the instrumentalists.

I've listened to Mozart's piano concertos in one form or another for several years and I've never heard them played as magnificently as Perahia does here. The English Chamber Orchestra sounds lush and full, but it's Perahia's lucid, mellifluous tone that will make you happy you shelled out the money for this set. And by the way, the early and middle Concertos are wonderful and have many many moments of pure vintage Mozart beauty; don't get stuck only listening to the well known ones (21, 23, 25 etc...)
In addition to the joy you'll get in listening to these concertos (surely some of Mozart's finest creations), these also function as a fine introduction to the style and sound of Mozart's greatest music: his operas. In many of these concertos, Mozart uses the interplay between the piano and the orchestra in similar fashion to how he would later use voice and orchestra in his operas. Before listening to these concertos I had very little interest in opera. I've since become quite fan and I love Mozart's three Da Ponte operas (Le Nozze Di Figaro, Don Giovanni, and Cosi Fan Tutte) as well as Die Zauberflote.
