The Alban Berg Quartett is at the centre of this Mozart collection – quartets, quintets and a chamber version of the piano concerto K 414. The pleasures that await the listener are evoked by Gramophone magazine: “The K 515 and K 516 Quintets are a real treat; the first movement of the G minor has an unusual urgency, and the lovely, balanced phrasing emphasises the singing, melodic nature of the music. The disc of concert performances with Brendel is another high point… In the K 414 Concerto… the quartet's accompaniments are exceptionally refined and intimate… Brendel is in particularly sprightly form in the finale.”

Even in its opera-buffa manifestation, the utterly disastrous wife-swapping experiment in Così fan tutte so scandalized the entire 19th century, from Beethoven to Wagner, that desperate attempts were constantly made to conceal the work’s frivolity under any number of respectable rewrites.

Involving, as it does, three master musicians and a fine chamber orchestra this was never likely to be be other than rewarding. It may not correspond with the ways of playing Mozart at the beginning of the twenty-first century which are fashionable at the beginning of the twenty-first century, but it has virtues – such as high intelligence, sympathy, certainty of purpose, grace, alertness of interplay – which transcend questions of performance practice. Looking at the names of the pianists above, we might be surprised by the presence of Sir Georg Solti, so used are we to thinking of him as a conductor. But the young Solti appeared in public as a pianist from the age of twelve and went on to study piano in Budapest, with Dohnányi and Bartok.

The choice of repertoire is more or less predictable. There are no lesser known arias, and Gott sei Dank they have been grouped by opera but, within the operas, not in the order of appearance. The ordering of the operas seems haphazard, too. "What an ungrateful nit-picker!" I can hear readers mumble. "Of course they have decided the order to achieve as much variety as possible". But I am not so sure. Why, in that case, start the recital, after the Zauberflöte overture with two arias in a row sung by Russell Braun?

"Questo libro è il distillato di quanto ho da dire, in tarda età, sulla musica, sui musicisti e su questioni relative al mio mestiere" dichiara Alfred Brendel, che, scegliendo la forma dell'abbecedario musicale - da "Accento" a "Zarzuela" -, rivela ancora una volta la sua duplice natura di musicista e acuto saggista, oltre a confermare la sua predilezione per l'aforisma e il frammento. Chi lo conosce sa che nei suoi scritti profonde riflessioni sui problemi dell'interpretazione musicale si alternano ad aneddoti, considerazioni sulla tecnica pianistica a sapide testimonianze sui rapporti ora idilliaci ora burrascosi con direttori d'orchestra e cantanti: e questo vademecum lo conferma..

This disc, well recorded in 1979, contains the 3 Romances written for the oboe and piano plus other titles, all of which can be found in other instrumentations. The playing of all of these works, all of which are gentle in concept, is sublime and well suited to Holliger's smooth style of oboe playing. The Evening Song is a gentle piece transcribed for oboe and piano by Joachim. The Adagio and Allegro will be familiar to several in its version for horn and piano.
