CLARA HASKIL PLAYS MOZART CONCERTI



On this page Clara Haskil plays Mozart concerti.  She can be heard in concerti by Bach, Beethoven, Chopin and Schumann by following this link.

Talk about a pianist all the leading conductors wanted to play with.  Here is a partial list: Ernest Ansermet, Sir John Barbirolli, Rudolf Baumgartner, Sir Thomas Beecham, Sir Adrian Boult, Pablo Calals, Sergiu Celibidache, André Cluytens, Victor Desarzens, Ferenc Fricsay, Alceo Galliera, Carlo Maria Giulini, Inghelbrecht, Eugen Jochum, Herbert von Karajan, Rudolf Kempe, Otto Klemperer, Rafael Kubelík, Igor Markevitch, Pierre Monteux, Charles Munch, Paul Paray, Bernhard Paumgartner, Hans Rosbaud, Willem van Otterloo, Wolfgang Sawallisch, Carl Schuricht, George Solti, Leopold Stokowski, Hans Swoboda, George Szell, and Carlo Zecchi, himself one of the greatest pianists of them all.  These were the great names of my youth, though I knew them from vinyl records only.  But they were as real to me as was the corner grocer.

I eventually met and had the opportunity to speak with many of them when I was an usher at Carnegie Hall for several seasons as a universtiy student, among them van Otterloo, Giulini, who autographed my score of Mahler's 2nd symphony, Kubelik, von Karajan, and Stokowski, and heard several of the others in concert.  I did not think to do so, but I am prepared to wager that had I asked them who was their favorite pianist with whom to play concerti, and had they been willing to answer, they would, nearly to a man, have declared that nobody equals the way Haskil plays Mozart concerti.

Clara Haskil plays Mozart concerti exquisitely.  These performances are perfect, splendid, gorgeous, stunning. Ask me what I really think.

This page, in which Clara Haskil plays Mozart concerti, contains multiple recordings with different conductors and orchestra of a number of the works she performed regularly, including two complete performances each of the Mozart K 271, K 415, K 459 and K 488, and six of the Mozart D minor, K 466 plus additional individual movements from K 271 and K 491.
