If you want to know who Andrea Barca is, translate Andras Schiff's name into Italian — it could have been Orchestre d'André Bateau, or maybe the Andie Boat Orchestra ….

"This recording from the historical and stunningly beautiful Teatro Olimpico affords us numerous insights into Andras Schiff's approach to music and music-making, and more besides. Schiff's joy in performance is as evident to the eye as to the ear. He formed the Capella Andrea Barca specifically for the performance of Mozart in 1999 with the best Mozart interpreters: "a crack ensemble handpicked from his most musically accomplished friends and acquaintances" The New York Times

"Pity the critic faced with music that arrives in a natural state and then is allowed to speak with complete naturalness. Writing about the pianist Andras Schiff playing Mozart… you looked for traction -- a fissure or crack, or some extraordinary anomaly to hold onto, but here the critic's fingers just kept slipping off." The New York Times
