Gottlieb Wallisch - Mozart in Vienna - hi-fi+

Gottlieb Wallisch has been performing on the World stage for over a decade. He's played with the Vienna Philharmonic, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and the London Philharmonic Youth orchestra to name but a few. The programs on this disc are from some of Mozart's most fruitful period of composition and are some of his best-loved works.

The period in Vienna is 1781-1791. Sonata No. 18, K.576 is very well known as is the very short Fantasy in D minor, K.397. Sonata 17, K.570 is a wonderful intro to the last works here, the Rondo in A, K.511 and a stunning Ten Variations in G major, K.455. Wallisch, born into a family of musicians, plies his craft with aplomb and demonstrates his competition prizewinning ways in the truest sense of the Viennese piano tradition. His tone is clear, precise with excellent fingering techniques that are sure to captivate the listener. Linn has given us some of the finest Steinway piano sounds I have ever heard. This is a disc that offers a true window into the genius of Mozart through exceptional talent. An intimate, lifelike endeavour.
