This two-disc set of Mozart piano duets by Ingrid Haebler, Jörg Demus, Ludwig Hoffmann, and Paul Badura-Skoda must surely rank as one of the most delightful recordings of these cheery and insightful piano works from the person who knew the piano as well as, but in a different way, Beethoven. These pieces are filled with lovely tunes, gorgeous compositional elements, and thought-provoking themes. These works are some of the rare pieces that can be enjoyed even by those not "into" classical music, but the level of sophistication is so great that even the greatest aficionado can be completely captivated. Philip's recording is clean and bright without harshness (a typical achievement by Philips, and a hallmark of their many recording endeavors), and the sound stage is such that we feel we are sitting right next to the the pianos. (A tip to even further increase your enjoyment of this set: listen with headphones.)

With Mozart, it is hard to go wrong. This disc doesn't fail. Mozart's brilliance is once again on display. The sonatas for 2 pianos are incredible and superbly played. My favorite is the K. 448. Mozart's music just makes you happy. And, I love the piano. So, this is paradise for me. The world feels like a better place when I listen to Mozart. The spirit is lifted and simply elevates you into a place so full of beauty and emotion. This 2 disc set delivers the right balance. The piano duet sonatas. The Fugue. The Mozart variations....all are fantastic. I definitely recommend this collection not only to Mozart fans but also to lovers of fine piano music.
Wow! This fellow Mozart was really something! Was there anything that he did badly? The four pianists in this Album do everything that is due to this music. Great! Really great! This and the one with the Piano Sonatas and Mitsuko Uchida! you cannot do wrong with either,(or both), of them. More that five stars!
