The icons of Deutsche Grammophon are back on the vinyl format with heavyweight 180-gram pressings from Optimal complete with a digital download of the corresponding album. DG's latest LP series includes some of the most virtuosic recordings ever made for the label from such great artists as Maurizio Pollini, Friedrich Gulda, Nathan Milstein and Emil Gilels. This release features pianist Friedrich Gulda's Mozart Piano Concertos Nos. 20 and 21, performed with the Vienna Philharmonic and conducted by Claudio Abbado.
"This 1973 recording of K595 is quite extraordinary - a performance that has sheer poetry in places (after the first-movement cadenza, for instance) that I've never heard matched. There's no shortage of energy either...the result is a Desert Island performance." - International Record Review
