So in honor of Mozart's birthday yesterday, we thought we would send him warm birthday wishes by featuring our recent HRx release of his piano concertos!
The performance quality alone would have made Mr. Mozart happy as it features legendary pianist Eugene Istomin. But the sonic qualities and purity of the performance in an HRx format would have been even more pleasing.
So Happy Belated Birthday Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart!
EUGENE ISTOMIN, piano
A legendary pianist! Two recordings by one of America's greatest musicians.
with Gerard Schwarz and the SEATTLE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
MOZART Concertos Nos. 21 and 24
"The Absolute Sound Super Disc List"
Istominand Schwarz have performed these immortal concertos many times, and insisted on recording them in long, complete takes in order to capture the live experience. "Prof." Johnson's HDCD wizardry pays large dividends in natural, high-resolution string textures and huge, three-dimensional soundstage. "RECORDING OF THE MONTH" --Stereophile, May 1996
