Great. One detail: I said K 248 where the correct number is K 246.
I’m sorry to say that I have always found Barenboim curiously un-inspiring in his Mozart concertos. Almost any other pianist seems better when it comes to this music, with Maria João Pires (especially K 488), Vladimir Azhkenay (esp. K 595) and Alfred Brendel as three of the greatest – I mean, in the 1980s when I was discovering this music and enjoyed it more than anything else. I should also mention Maurizio Pollini’s K. 459 with Karl Böhm: this was in fact my first effective introduction to the marvels of Mozart. Surely more stars have risen since then whose rise I haven’t followed. I now hardly listen to Mozart at all. It has become too familiar to me – and as you know, there is so much more. I took a Radu Lupu to get me hooked again!
