 Re: Favorite recording of Mozart concerto?

Bob's right. I've been around.

I'm reminded that I once purchased a ticket to hear Benny Goodman play the Mozart Concerto with the Philadelphia Orchestra under Eugene Ormandy at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center. It was part of a summer festival and the ticket was very expensive as I recall -- probably some outrageous sum like $25.

I traveled to the event from Montreal with my father in great anticipation, only to discover that Goodman had cancelled his appearance at the last minute due to illness. So who stepped in in his place? Anthony Gigliotti, of course. I later heard that Gigliotti got the call to play the concerto only in the afternoon of the performance.

Needless to say, I was not disappointed. Gigliotti's playing was flawless. I only remember thinking that the tempo of the second movement was too fast (i.e. faster than the Marcellus recording that we all worshiped in those days) but, hey, I was only a kid and probably didn't qualify even to have an opinion.

I subsequently heard Benny Goodman live a number of times and once, in Toronto, even met him briefly. Okay, enough name dropping for one day.
