Well Said and in Fewer Words!

David Fanning's review for the Telegraph of violinist Henning Kraggerud's performance of the Tchaikovsky concerto managed to distill what I have been trying to say about Emanuel Ax' Mozart performance in far fewer words:

Kraggerud plays with a freedom that seems immune to what any teacher, critic or peer musician might think of him. But he has an instinctive good taste that protects him from the dangers of mere egotism and wilfulness.
