"The Pianos of Mozart's Time, and His Own Piano" by Stewart Pollens
Stewart Pollens is the former (1976-2006) Conservator of Musical Instruments at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the author of books that include "The Early Pianoforte," "Stradivari," and the forthcoming "The Manual of Musical Instrument Conservation" and "Bartolomeo Cristofori", all published by Cambridge University Press.
"Steven Lubin was the soloist in Mozart's 'Coronation' Concerto... Mozart favored a translucent sound and a singing melody that 'must flow like oil'... Mr. Lubin demonstrated this approach with clearly delineated articulation... he played with a singing tone."(The New York Times)
"The soloist was the superb violinist Stephanie Chase, who played with elegance, dexterity, rhythmic vitality and great imagination. This was a Classical performance in the best sense: clear-headed, straightforward, intelligent" (Boston Globe)
Louise Dubin "is a superior instrumentalist and an intelligent, tasteful musician. She made a very fine impression." (New York Concert Review)
