Mozart - Piano Concertos No. 20 And 23 - Barenboim - English Chamber Orchestra on XRCD24 from Hi-Q Records

It was EMI producer Suvi Raj Grubb who not only effectively "discovered" the young Daniel Barenboim for records but also gave him his first chance to conduct an orchestra on record with this cycle of the complete Mozart Piano Concertos, of which this was the first release. The partnership of producer and artist gave rise to many great recordings, including the complete Mozart and Beethoven piano sonatas, as well as the Beethoven Piano Concertos with Klemperer. 

The music here was recorded January 1-2, 1967 at Abbey Road Studio No. 1 in London with the English Chamber Orchestra, Grubb producing and engineers Robert Gooch (with Neville Boyling on No. 20). Mastered from the original analogue EMI master tapes, Barenboim's recording of Mozart's Piano Concertos No. 20 And 23 is presented here on the superior audiophile XRCD24 format. This is a standard "Red Book" CD which is compatible with all CD players. 

"Straightaway this record establishes him as a Mozartian of the front rank...the chief delight here is the unity of the performance: the English Chamber Orchestra are happy to see the music the way Barenboim does and are with him to a man...The recording sounds excellent here and the natural microphone balances are especially to be praised, The superb orchestral colour of these performances has been very well captured: the addition of, say, flute or second bassoon to a texture, or the presence of 'divisi' violas, immediately tells and just to the right degree..." - Gramophone

Musicians:
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (composer)
Daniel Barenboim (piano, conductor)
The English Chamber Orchestra
