Mozart & Salieri, Piano Concertos - William Grant Naboré
"A natural aristocrat of the piano, and a musician to match, William Grant Naboré brings a refined eloquence to his playing of Mozart (who demands it) and Salieri (who profits by it). His phrasing is curvaceous but chaste, his articulation insightful but never didactic. If style is fitness for function, Naboré is a stylist to the manner born." Jeremy Siepmann
"Mozart's 1785 Concerto in F flat, which Naboré has recorded with the Brixi Orchestra of Prague, is of a captivating beauty. We find an almost weightless Mozart here, especially in the ADAGIO which shows such a profusion of color that listening to it becomes a real aesthetic feast! Even Mozart's ill-starred rival, Antonio Salieri, soars in Naboré's hands to unexpected heights." PIANO NEWS - Germany
