Great set of performances of great music,
This review is from: Mozart - 51 Symphonies (Audio CD)
I am pleased with my purchase of the Jeffrey Tate set of Mozart symphonies. The performances are lively, the price is good and the packaging is compact and easy to fit on the shelf [though the shelf where my Mozart recordings are housed is getting pretty full!]
Some scholars have suggested that most of Mozart's symphonies are of a lesser quality than the later, well-known ones, but I think Mozart is such a fascinating character that it is well worth hearing as much of his music as you can. And many of the lesser known works are enjoyable and interesting to listen to.
There may be better individual recordings of various symphonies, but this is a reliable set for the lot. Highly recommended
