John O'Conor has everything technically that a Mozart pianist requires. His technique is deft without ever being overemphatic. His sense of style is fluid, with an ability to see where the music is going structurally without ever sacrificing nuance or detail. My first experience of these two concertos on one album were on a Sine Qua Non LP featuring Christoph Eschenbach and the Hamburg Philharmonic. That was a stunning achievement and deserves to be on CD. I heard Eschenbach play these two concertos at Mostly Mozart in the 1970's. Geza Anda also made a fine version of No. 19, as did Rudolf Serkin. O'Conor's playing is easily in the same league. Mackerras is an astute and vigorous accompanist. The winds and horns of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra are especially delectable. Perhaps the most controversial moment occurs near the end of No. 23's slow movement, where O'Conor adds a lot of ornamentation. I find it very stylish and a welcome addition to the performance. The CD's sound engineering is superb, with an exemplary balance between piano and orchestra. This deserves to be a reference recording of these pieces. As for the Rondo, its score has been pieced together from fragments collected in recent years. It is enjoyable, but not at the same level of invention as the concertos.

Yes, the Pianist is John O'Connor. He sounds light, lively and flowing to me! Great stuff. And the Orchestra sounds LIT. Enthusiastic, precise, and in love with the sound.

***In the fifth track, John O. feels his way lovingly into the runs. He really arrivied in the sweet spot.

Track 4 (1st movement of Mozart's 23rd piano concerto) never gets old for me (so lyrical and full of emotion), and this is the best recording I've heard. This is a "desert island" CD for me; it's such a treasure that I actually picked up a second copy at a used record store a while back. The liner notes are very interesting too, explaining what else Mozart was writing at the time, etc. Amazon is currently selling this disc for $6, which is an absolute steal for such a well played and recorded version of these two great concertos.
