I think one of the greatest Mozart concerto performers is Annie Fischer. I absolutely love the Hummel cadenza in the first movement that she plays. Was wondering how many people here enjoy later written cadenza's in concertos. I know it is not common anymore like it used to be, but to me a concerto is supposed to illustrate the virtuosity of the soloist. I wish it didn't become commonplace for composers to write the cadenza's into their pieces. It really eliminates a lot of creative improvisation. Wondering what other's thoughts on this are.

Richter recorded no 22 with Britten and played Britten’s cadenzas which must rank as the most ghastly inappropriate monstrosities ever to disgrace a Mozart concerto. Totally agree about Annie Fischer. Marvellous
