July 2010. K491 and K537 never issued – full explanation as to why in the booklet – both have an enjoyment and spontaneity not always found in the studio. K503 and K595 find Georg Solti leading a vivid, bold and precise orchestral complement to Alicia de Larrocha’s subtle, colourful and dynamic playing. Old-fashioned, time-taken Mozart, expressive, romantic and often exquisite: don’t miss!
