Vol. 1 of this series received outstanding press, comparing it to the finest Mozart cycles ever recorded."In Primakov's recording each moment is necessary like precise words in a good poem....such discoveries -or discoverers -do not come too often. I can't wait to hear Volume 2." --Muscweb-International; "The piano playing is of exceptional quality: refined, multi-coloured, elegant of phrase and immaculately balanced, both in itself and in relation to the effortlessly stylish orchestra. By almost every objective criterion, Vassily Primakov is a Mozartian to the manner born, fit to stand as a role model to a new generation." -BBC Music Magazine; Volume 2 includes two of Mozart's greatest creations- the stormy and dramatic D minor concerto, and the ever-songful C major, Nos. 20 & 21.
