Paul Badura-Skoda plays Mozart

Paul Badura-Skoda plays Mozart


Mozart:

Piano Concerto No. 25 in C major, K503

live 15 June 1978

Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, Horst Stein

Piano Concerto No. 22 in E flat major, K482

live 19 & 20 December 1959

Amsterdam Concertgebouw Orchestra, George Szell


Another release by this world famous pianist. This CD includes the first release of this recording of Piano Concerto No.25 (recorded in 1978) and it is the first time on CD for this performance of Piano Concerto No. 22 (recorded in 1959). Paul Badura-Skoda’s extensive notes on the music and on these performances are also included here.

“The bright, communicative rapport is evident from the first. Badura-Skoda plays with imaginative control, and rounded tone...These contrasting performances – nearly twenty years apart, with different conductors and orchestras – demonstrate Badura-Skoda’s assured and unflagging Mozartian affiliations. Admirers need not hesitate for a moment.” MusicWeb International, January 2012
