Piggybacking on Alf’s recent Brendel posts..
For those not familiar with Brendel, his mastery of the keyboard is at a level that few will ever be able to reach. Here, though back in 1982, Brendel has already “owned” the works, playing each Mozart work with fluidity, precision, and smooth sonority. Brendel’s playing is a delight, and that is true regardless of how many other recordings you might have of the Mozart piano concertos.
The recording here by Philips is very good, and the trademark smooth and rich Philips recording characteristics are in full play. It is unlikely you’ll have much, if any at all, issues with the technical aspects of the recording itself.
