5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect harmony, 29 Sep 2007
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mozart - Sinfonia Concertante (Audio CD)
If the spheres are in harmony then all's well with the world. This is most certainly the case here as Perlman and Zukerman blend together to joyful effect in this most lovely of Mozart's concertos. It is a live performance but there is no reduction in sound quality or interference from the audience. Just wonderful music making of the highest order. It can be had for an extremely competitive price on Amazon - but bought in the shops for £15. No contest!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mozart at his finest, 7 July 2003
This review is from: Mozart - Sinfonia Concertante (Audio CD)
Perhaps I was living under a stone, but I had never heard of Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante before I happened to pick up a copy of this recording in the days when it was packaged with Vivaldi's 4 Seasons. Perhaps the requirement for 2 soloists, with one on the viola, has kept it out of the concert halls, but it is for me one of his finest works. Don't be put off by Mozart's violin concertos, which are lightweight, if enjoyable - the Sinfonia Concertante is a major work which repays repeated listening. It's also a work that benefits from a fine performance, which it gets here. Just listen to the entry of the soloists in the first movement, or the intertwining of the lines in the second movement. The orchestra also has a lot to do, and Mehta is a full participant in the music making, contributing some memorable passages. All in all a must have CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Joyfully Sublime, 11 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mozart - Sinfonia Concertante (Audio CD)
Ever since I first heard this wonderful composition by the boy genius, it gets better every time i hear it.
Performed on this CD by legends, it is Joyful, exhilarating and sublime.
Any more words of mine would be superfluous.

4.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't Quite Make it to Greatness, 5 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mozart - Sinfonia Concertante (Audio CD)
One of my favourite pieces of music. Probably this version doesn't quite meet the mark for me because in my youth I had a vinyl record of this music which I wore out many years ago. I have been unable to remember the performers, and have been looking for something with the same verve for a long time.
Modern recordings all seem to be in some conspiracy in which there is too much measurement and not enough spontaneous passion: the instruments are shown off very well, and on this version you have to say that the playing is impeccable, but something is missing which would make this great.
