Simply one of the finest examples of Mozart recorded. Nothing, absolutely nothing is out of balance. The Columbia Symphony plays superbly for Szell and Serkin is completely in sync with them. The recording was made with such clarity in the late 50s, that it still rivals most current digital versions, and performance-wise, leaves them in the dust.

You have Serkin’s almost unnatural ability to play the keys with an even weight, plus his beautiful touch, always each note very distinct and measured. And Szell giving the same weight to the orchestral soloists.

  1. When I was a teen and 20’s I loved Serkin. Had a lot of his stuff. This to me is melancholia with Serkin, not Mozart though.

    Mille grazia buon amico.
