5.0 out of 5 stars absolutely wonderful part two 27 July 2010
Format:Audio CD
I had long been looking for the Jeffrey Tate set of the complete symphonies on EMI, ordered the very last one to be had at frightful expense, was delivered the wrong set (which I returned) and finally decided on the two volumes of early symphonies by Harnoncourt instead. I have one set of the later symphonies on period instruments by the Mozart Academy under Jaap vd Linden which I have never really warmed to, mainly because of the scraggy sound of the band, so I nourished some trepidations when I found out that this collection too was played on period instruments. But some reviews I read were quite positive so I pushed the order button and that was that. I must say that I have not regretted the purchase yet. The music is de-light-ful (why are those later symphonies deemed to be superior to these youthfully exuberant works I wonder?), an excellent backdrop for relaxation, cooking, reading, studying, driving the car (turn up the volume, open your windows and sunroof and show those tykes with their boom-boom-boom sound machines blasting away that this guy is getting all the attention of the ladies on the zebra crossing; well those over forty-five with a taste for the mildly eccentric anyway) etc. One footfall with the early Mozart is that one piece of music tends to sound very much like the other and listening intently for the differences is, unlike with Mahler, only an option if you have nothing, but absolutely nothing, better to do, so not an obvious choice for a passtime (oh, dear, am I really saying this? How dare I!, but there you are). So is one really in need of all Mozart's symphonies? If Tate comes along at a more reasonable price, I might say yes. Until then, the two Harnoncourts are more than adequate.
