    Mozart / Maria João Pires, 1974: Concerto No. 21 in C major

    David Hertzberg

    by David Hertzberg

    So that there is no question in the mind of the listener, I rely principally on images of the LP and LP jacket in order to document the authenticity of historically important recordings such as these.

    Thirty year-old Maria João Pires is soloist in this 1974 recording of the third movement of Mozart's 21st piano concerto in C major, K. 467. Theodor Guschlbauer (b. 1939) conducts the Chamber Orchestra of the Gulbenkian Foundation of Lisbon.

    I created this video from the LP depicted above, issued by the Musical Heritage Society (licensed from Erato), serial number MHS 3737. This recording is dated 1974; it was re-issued by MHS in 1978.

    The Library of Congress online catalog entry for this recording is available for review here:

    Movement 3: Allegro vivace assai
