A period of nearly 14 years separates these two piano concertos – a period which in Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's life equals a whole universe of symphonies, sonatas, quartets, operas, and sounds. Gustav Kuhn, in league with pianist Jasminka Stancul and the Haydn Orchestra of Bolzano and Trento, covers the distance between Mozart's first fully recognized piano concerto (1777) and his last, written in 1791. "Lyrical, ornate, dashing," was the verdict of the critic of the Los Angeles Times about Stancul's Mozart interpretation; the Wiener Zeitung declared her to be a "first-rate interpreter of Mozart", and her playing like a "crystal-clear pearl." She coaxes all the bold freshness from the first movement of the E flat major concerto, immerses herself in the gloomy sadness of the Andantino, and playfully flashes on the final exuberance. With equal skill she overlays the B flat major concerto, written in the year of Mozart's death, with a gentle melancholy, without any trace of artificial tragedy. Gustav Kuhn grants his pianist the luxury of a small yet full-sounding orchestra, with each musician a soloist, yet all of them together as one instrument. The perfect combination, both for Beethoven (Concertos 1&5, WWE 1CD 60010) and for Mozart.
Recommendation
Prick up your ears while listening to these recordings of genuinely Viennese music and you may detect traces of the “primordial soup” of the Vienna New Year’s Concert. 
Franui transfer the essential spirit of Schubert to the 21st century: "Music to make your knees weaken," praised the Berliner Zeitung
