Complete Mozart Edition Vol 2 - Symphonies 21-41 / Marriner
Composer: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Conductor: Sir Neville Marriner
Ensemble: Academy of St. Martin in the Fields
Uni/Philips - #22502 / November 6, 1990

Click here for more information
There are only six truly "late" Mozart symphonies--if anything can be called late when the composer died at age 35. These are numbers 35 through 41 (there is no 37, as it's by Michael Haydn). All of the others are fairly early works of varying worth, but they still have plenty of charm and an unflagging fund of melody. Sir Neville Marriner's performances are completely reliable, if perhaps lacking the last ounce of fantasy. You won't be disappointed in any case. --David Hurwitz

Mozart: Symphonies 32, 35 & 39 / Mackerras, Prague CO
Composer: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Conductor: Sir Charles Mackerras
Ensemble: Prague Chamber Orchestra
Telarc - #80203 / August 29, 1990

Mozart composed the "Haffner" Symphony (No. 35) at such a furious pace that he forgot about the music entirely, and was pleasantly surprised by its quality when he had a copy sent to him sometime later. Sir Charles Mackerras's Mozart performances perfectly capture that element of happy surprise: his swift tempos and extraordinary rhythmic accuracy make this music a constant source of delight. Irresistible. --David Hurwitz Read more


Mozart: Overtures, etc / Schippers, Szell, Entremont

Composer: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Conductor: Thomas Schippers, Antonia Brico, et al.
Performer: Ernani Angelucci, Myron Bloom, et al.
Ensemble: Columbia Symphony Orchestra, Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra, et al.
Sony Classics - #62830 / March 4, 1997

This entertaining disc offers all of Mozart's major overtures in performances that cover a wide range of interpretation, from the hyperprecise Szell to the warmth of Bruno Walter. The younger generation is represented by Thomas Schippers, and also by Antonia Brico, one of the first female conductors to make an international reputation for herself. The addition of an early divertimento conducted by Szell is an added attraction--he was peerless in this music--and you also get Philippe Entremont's...Read more


Mozart: Serenade in Bb "Gran Partita" / Mackerras
Composer: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Conductor: Sir Charles Mackerras
Ensemble: Orchestra of St. Luke's Chamber Ensemble
Telarc - #80359 / April 26, 1994

Click here for more information

This familiar music has now been recorded many times, but seldom as effectively as it is here. Sir Charles Mackerras is a superb Mozartean, and this performance just brims with life. The rhythms are crisp and clearcut, the phrasing loving, and the balances consistently superb. Telarc's recording, with its lifelike presence, is another positive factor. The only possible complaint about this disc is the half hour of empty space which could have been used for more Mozart. --Leslie Gerber Read more


Mozart: Eine kleine Nachtmusik, etc / Szell, Leinsdorf
Composer: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Conductor: George Szell, Erich Leinsdorf
Performer: Bernard Adelstein
Ensemble: Cleveland Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra
Sony Classics - #48266 / November 17, 1992

Who doesn't love "A Little Night Music"? Who doesn't immediately recognize those famous opening bars--one of Mozart's famous "question and answer" musical phrases. The second movement even put in an unexpected appearance in the movie Alien. The "Posthorn" Serenade is one of Mozart's largest works in a form that only he mastered--a large, multimovement, orchestral extravaganza combining elements of both symphony and concerto. Once again, George Szell's sense of the true Mozart style is second to...Read more
