Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Radio-Sinfonieorchester Stuttgart des SWR
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Piano Concerto No. 9 E flat major K 271 (Jeunehomme)
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Piano Concerto No. 19 F major K 459 (2nd Coronation Concert)
These outstanding recordings dating from 1952 and 1956 feature Clara Haskil at a time when her fame was still on the rise. Unlike almost any other pianist, her perceptive, unpretentious artistry was able to bring Mozart’s music to life in such a natural way, that it truly deserves to be described as “timeless”, even some 60 years after the recordings were made. Clara Haskil’s performances of Mozart’s concertos Nos. 9 and 19 are stunning, and Carl Schuricht is equally impressive in his supporting role. These outstanding interpretations represent a high-point in the collaboration between two highly distinguished, yet modest, artists.
