The Cradle of Mozart's Musical Talents

"People may know little about this orchestra (even though it has made a number of records with top performer like Geza Anda), this is the town where Mozart was borned and his musical talents were brought up. The orchestra can compare with the world's first rate orchestras with a lot of pride.
Other than Horowitz or Gulda, I have seen 4 other contemporary pianists performing Mozart concerto on video namely, Barebboim, Pollini, Maria Joao Pires and Justus Franz. They are all very good. Maria's performance is somewhere between Pollini and Justus Franz... With this video, we have a bonus of a most beautiful voice: Cludia Kallisch singing Figaro etc.Total running time is 87 minutes. Both the sound and vision and above all the music of this video is of high quality that well deserve a place in any library. Recommended."

"Greate subtitles that help you to understand the music. It tells you what is the main theme, what is the coda, etc. Never seen this in other music DVDs. The recording is great, too."

"This is a fun concert! The playing is light and lively, the way Mozart should be heard. The music analysis is unique and fun to watch. The views of the concert hall and the orchestra fit the music and add quite a bit the the enjoyment of watching this great DVD. One of my favorites!"
Marred by bad sound

"Through Ms. Tipo's performance of the Mozart concerto is very nice, and the idea of being able to view ongoing formal analysis is good, the sound quality was very poor, with distortion and levelled dynamics. Perhaps I had a faulty DVD, since others praised its sound? It was almost painful to listen to."
