Description
The sensitive and elegant artistry of Romanian pianist Clara Haskil (1895–1960) was made for the music of Mozart, of which she made a specialty. Other pianists sang her praises: Dinu Lipatti described her playing as "the sum of perfection on earth," while Wilhelm Backhaus called it "the most beautiful in the world." This album features the concertos K. 271 ("Jeunehomme") and K. 459 in early 1950s performances under Otto Ackermann and Ferenc Fricsay, respectively, as well as the rarely performed Variations on a Duport Minuet, K. 573 (1956, from the Besançon Festival).

"Sparkling and full of nuance…. She was immensely gifted…. A great Mozartian … regardless of style or era."—Fanfare

"She was something of a recluse, persecuted by the Nazis and plagued by debilitating illnesses. It's remarkable that any joy could emanate from such an arduous life, but listening to this CD shows us that sometimes through great suffering comes great beauty."—All Music Guide
