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-Vinyls 24/96 (Philips) Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Piano Concertos KV 466 & KV 491 (Haskil/Markevitch)

front-small-boxsetMany thanks to Jean-Luc for this gem
This is a virtually perfect recording that’s amazing. Haskil and Markevitch combine just the right amount of fire, brio and elegance that makes these minor key Mozart concerti so special. Perhaps here and there, they could have amped the passion and tempo up just a notch. But it’s still great, and an especial treat to hear the woefully underrated Lamoureux in a wonderfully recorded ambience. Bravo to the recording engineers.
