Mozart: Clarinet Concerto, Clarinet Quintet - Marriner/Marriner          (13 of 14 found this review helpful)
  July 16, 2007

I've been hesitating about writing the review for the Bis release or this one, and seeing that there were much more recommendations for the Bis recording, I'll go with Pentatone!

Mozart: Piano Concertos Nos. 9 & 25 - Brendel          (6 of 8 found this review helpful)

The first thing I need to say is that my Cary player was being repaired for three weeks, ... more
