The Later Symphonies of Mozart are well known and have been performed by many artists. But few recordings excell over the rest. These certainly go at the top of the list, and they just happen to be on period instruments. John Eliot Gardiner is well versed in mozart's style and the music of the period. While many orchestras play mozart pretty, Gardiner gives these symphonys that extra measure of energy and excitement that is often lacking. This is truely a must-have collection and its a shame that it is no longer in production.
