This is a great CD!!! We are so privileged to have Leon Fleisher actively recording in his eighties! His interpretations are so wonderful.
Fleisher has another winner
It's an amazing disc even if you haven't heard his life story. Fleisher is back with both writs and now as conductor of a trio of Mozart concertos. His powers of interpretation and insights of conducting have not waned over the years. It should be noted that that the concerto for three pianos is actually a new trancription for two, played with his wife. Still it's a great disc for music and piano lovers alike.
I am amazed that Fleisher still keeps on improving with age.... I saw him perform a solo concert shortly before this recording was made, but this beats all of that year's season! This is very different from Horowitz, for example, but it still is a worthy addition to anyone's collection. Such maturity, such tone, such color.... A must!
