This release features the 7th and 8th volumes in the Naxos Idil Biret Concerto Edition. “Miss Biret was soloist in an entrancing performance of Mozart’s concerto K. 482 with the Halle Orchestra conducted by Mlle Nadia Boulanger. The variety of her playing its finely-shaded gradations and brilliant but never mechanical figurations, revealed her as already a remarkable artist. Not for many years has a Halle audience heard such perfectly balanced Mozart playing… No words can describe the wondrous finale, with its mixture of gaiety and anguish. This was a performance in which every note counted for its full value.” (Daily Telegraph UK) “Idil Biret is one of the few women pianists who has been able to assert her position on the world stages for decades. Biret plays here the works of… Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and with these recordings proves once again that she belongs among the greatest pianists of her time.” (Frolich & Kaufmann)
