Mozart at his best

These interpretations of Mozart have been part of my library since I was 14, back in the 70’s. Originally issued by Angel in the mid 50’s, they were rereleased on Seraphim, which was then the budget label for Angel.
Listening to these recordings, one cannot help but notice the attention Gieseking gives to the steady timing. He does not take the liberties that other pianists have been known to take with some music of this era.
Is it any wonder that some musical purists consider these interpretations seminal? These CD’s are a worthy addition to any classical library (although I can’t help but reminisce about the fact that I paid $27.39 for the 11 record set when I bought it almost 30 years ago).
