 Re: Favorite recording of Mozart concerto?

I disagree. Just like having the original manuscript of Shakespeare's Hamlet wouldn't define the best contemporary version. Given the all-encompassing potential of musical expression, the symbols we have for it's notation are very few.

I agree that having the original manuscript would be wonderful. I would love to know what Mozart actually did write. But the performers of my "favourite recording" would need far more than that.

Bob Bernardo described George Szell as being "a stickler for details when performing pieces the way the Composers wanted the pieces played." I would like to know what defined Szell's parameters for his idea of the way Mozart would want this piece to be played? And by implication, why this would lead to a "mechanical" performance?
