AllMusic Review by

Berlin Classics' 10-CD box set of most of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's piano concertos gathers together recordings German pianist Annerose Schmidt made between 1972 and 1978 with Kurt Masur and the Dresden Philharmonic, which were previously released in the former GDR. This package begins with Piano Concertos No. 5, No. 6, and No. 8 and the Concert Rondo in D major on the first disc; followed by No. 9 and No. 11 on the second disc; No. 12, the Concert Rondo in A major, and No. 13 on the third disc; and then proceeds uninterrupted from No. 14 to No. 27 on the remaining CDs. These analog recordings have been digitally remastered and the sound is clear and noise-free.
