HD-Vinyl 24/96 (EMI) JS Bach/WA Mozart – Concerti For Two Pianos (Haskil/Anda)

front-small-boxsetMany thanks to Jean-Luc for this rarity
These Concerti for Two Hands are light, fresh and vibrant in spite of the 1950s recording. I can never recommend this disk too much.
Philips, DG, EMI et al erred badly in not procuring a Mozart concerto-cycle from Haskil. She did know all of the Mozart concertos

HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Philips) Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – The Piano Concertos (Haebler)

A gigantic “thank you” to our friend Jean-Luc for this gift
Ingrid Haebler knows that Mozart should be played with taste and not bombast. She refuses to make the music maudlin by adding grace notes or trills which aren’t in the score; instead, she plays it as it is written and lets it speak for itself (forgive the cliché). Listening to her play, you can see how well she understands Mozart’s famous statement: “Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius.” This is music from heaven. All the wonderful Piano Concertos are here on twelve discs. All are excellent. They are beautiful to listen to. It is the work and inspiration of a genius. If you want to go to heaven without leaving your House, then listen to this music.
