Rudolf Serkin and the Marlboro Festival Orchestra

play No. 11, K. 413 & No. 20. K. 466

Rudolf Serkin and the Marlboro Festival Orchestra conducted by Alexander Schneider

“Rudolf Serkin allows the immense energy of K. 466 to slip through his fingers with due care. He battles his way through the weighty first movement with enthusiasm and verve, lets his fingertips dance daintily through the cantilena of the Romance, and then rousingly celebrates the passionate and fiery Finale with a bell-like touch. On the reverse side, the Festival Orchestra rounds off this inspiring performance with the filigree and charmingly effervescent K. 413 – as cheerful as it is gallant.”

Recorded August 1957
