BTW I've started on the Mozart concertos in the Alfred Brendel box. I'm well familiar with 20-27 as well as the concerto for two pianos but I somehow never got into the others except to a degree the "Jeunehomme" and (to a much greater degree) the 17th. This is a complete cycle save for the first four.
It's pretty good stuff, and the earlier ones are better than I had anticipated. I don't remember each one in detail but the slow movement in I think the sixth? is pretty great (if it is the sixth then it was really the only good part of the work). Less profound than the later ones but what the hell. I'm on the 11-13 set and they're not very good, especially coming right after the ninth and tenth.
