Any suggestions of a good, no, great performance and recording of this masterpiece?

It's my favorite Mozart composition. The melody is so airy and the voice leading used in this piece makes me think that if he were alive today he would be playing piano in a jazz bar in Manhattan.

I'd love to find a great performance and recording of the whole concerto. Any other extraneous stuff is unimportant.

Haven't heard this particular recording but since it is Benny Goodman it is probably good man!


Benny Goodman: Mozart At Tanglewood

I found it on CDNow

Hmm... This piece would be right up Benny Goodman's alley.

Everytime I hear the second movement I just want to cry. It's just sheer musical perfection. I love how Mozart teases with the cadence and when it is finally delivered it's soooo sweet.

I'll see if I can find the Benny Goodman CD. It would probably be worth it just for the performance aspect alone.

I have been happy with this version
