'Gottlieb Wallisch und das Piatti Quartett prasentieren sehr Uberzeugende Interpretationen der Klavierkonzerte 12, 13 und 14, wobei insbesondere Wallisch sich als ein ebenso nuancierter wie virtuoser Pianist entpuppt der den jugend Uchen Drive aber auch das bereits vorhandene Genie Mozarts sehr deutlich horbar macht.’

Gottlieb Wallisch - Mozart Piano Concertos - Musical Pointers


01 July 2013
Musical Pointers
Peter Grahame Woolf

Domestic alternatives which Mozart often played, popular in his time.

These are satisfying accounts which we have enjoyed.

Wallisch has a way with his Steinway D which reconciles me to modern pianos, with their advantage that dynamic balance with the strings is naturally easier and more equal than on period performances in which the piano is naturally quieter than the strings (c.f. Brautigan).
