I love Karajan for beethoven as I feel he focuses on the best parts and speeds through some of the slower movements (gross simplification)

but mozart was always intricate and complex but I must admit my lack of knowledge with mozart composers.

Who do you guys recommend?


Leonard Bernstein for the 40th, the soundtrack to Elvira Madigan for piano concertos. I don't listen to much Mozart beyond the 40th and his concertos...

Also, get Carlos Kleiber's Beethoven's 5th and 7th. Smile


the way to Mozart is through the operas. Don G is my favorite but perhaps Figaro is easier. Figaro is the first opera I saw and was immediately hooked. The first recording of Figaro I purchased was Marriner's on Phillips.
It's a good place to start also.
