By J Scott Morrison HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on August 3, 2005
It has been my pleasure this past week to immerse myself in the glorious piano concertos of Mozart, played and recorded live by the eminent Viennese pianist Rudolf Buchbinder leading the Vienna Symphony from the keyboard. I honestly think that if I had to limit myself to one genre of music by Mozart (for that famous desert isle we always talk about) I would choose the piano concertos, although to be honest I would probably try to sneak the da Ponte operas into the mix. Still, it is the concertos that I reach for most often. They can be exciting, soothing, dramatic, celebratory, even romantic beyond almost anything else Mozart wrote, and they are unfailingly interesting musically. I was delighted, then, to come upon these reissues of Buchbinder's complete traversal. They were initially recorded live in seven concerts and issued on the Calig label in, I believe, 1998. (And to be honest, this isn't a complete traversal. The series contains 21 concerti beginning with K. 175, the one usually designated No. 5, and does not include the two- and three-piano concerti.)

There are, of course, other complete, or nearly complete, sets including those of Murray Perahia, Alfred Brendel, Geza Anda, Mitsuko Uchida and Vladimir Ashkenazy. I've not heard them all but of the ones I know this set has the warmest most lifelike sound. There are single recordings of individual concerti that I would not want to be without (No. 27, K. 595 with Curzon/Britten; No. 20, K. 466 with Artur Rubinstein; No. 12, K. 414 by Perahia as well as some by Annie Fischer, Artur Schnabel, Emil Gilels, Lili Kraus, Maria João Pires, Robert Levin and Malcom Bilson) but there is something to be said for a single pianist/conductor giving us the entire oeuvre from his perspective.
