Product Description

Product Description

Our Complete Mozart Edition, released in 2006, was an international hit, winning plaudits from critics and customers alike for the quality of the music making and representing great value for money. Why, then, have we chosen not to rest on our laurels but to improve upon this successful product? Here are some of the reasons: 1. The interpretation of Mozart's music continues to evolve and, four years on from the original release, Brilliant Classics Complete Mozart Edition has evolved with it. We have included new recordings by prominent Mozart performers such as Guiliano Carmignola (violin concertos) and Oficina Musicum (La Betulia Liberata). Several of the recordings have already won the coveted Diapason d'or. 2. The Enhanced Contents - Brilliant Classics Complete Mozart Edition contains: 170 CDs representing the entirety of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's oeuvre in historically informed performances. Plus a CD-ROM containing liner notes and performers biographies in English, librettos and sung texts, complete Brilliant Classics catalogue Includes all of the concertos, symphonies, chamber music, divertimenti, sonatas and of course the operas. Performances by such outstanding soloists and ensembles as: Jaap ter Linden, Peter-Lukas Graf, Giuliano Carmignola, Karl Leister, Bart van Oort, Salvatore Accardo, Bruno Canino, Nobuko Imai, Claron McFadden, Sigiswald Kuijken, Zoltan Kocsis; Chamber Choir of Europe, Choeurs du Théatre Royal de la Monnaie; Mozart Akademie Amsterdam, Philharmonia Orchestra, Camerata Bern, Mozarteum-Orchester Salzburg, Chamber Orchestra of Europe, Wiener Akademie, Orchestre du Théatre Royal de la Monnaie, Staatskapelle Dresden, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Kammerorchester Berlin, English Chamber Orchestra, Brandis Quartet 3. The Packaging: Our new, redesigned packaging means CDs in slipcases and the complete set neatly displayable in a single, attractive space-saving box. For reasons of completeness, pure musical enjoyment, scholarly research, attractive, space-saving design and price, you cannot afford to be without Brilliant Classics improved Complete Mozart Edition.

This is a great collection of Mozart's complete works made even better if you can find an Amozon
acceptable under used for under half price!! When I purchased this week two others were also available. Box a little damaged but not the Cd's. Recordings a really very good and sound quality is first class.

Twenty years ago, buying a complete works of Mozart would have been an arduous and expensive task. Now that you do so for this price, it seems harsh to knock the product. However, Brilliant's collection is not the only option. You can, for example, invest in the much more expensive set assembled by Phillips. So, which should you go for?

By comparison with other recordings that I either own or have heard, some sections of Brilliant's collection are a disappointment. I started with the piano concertos by Derek Han and the Philharmonia Orchestra and was unimpressed. As I happen to also have the Phillips cycle by Alfred Brendel and the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, I was able to make a direct comparison by listening to one after the other. It became became apparent that the sound on the Phillips recording is clearer and that the orchestra's playing is more dynamic. Although Derek Han's piano suffers less by comparison, I will stick to the Brendel. It may be relevant that the Brendel cycle was recorded over a period of 18 years, whereas Han's is all labelled as being 1992. The thought occurred to me that the economics of recording complete works within a short period may not allow the musicians to do themselves full justice.

In addition, a personal reservation is the choice of using period instruments for some of the piano-based chamber music, for example on the piano quartets, two of the five piano trios and some of the solo piano works. Here my problem lies with the sound of the forte piano rather than the playing itself. However others may disagree. On the positive side the difference in approach from most other recordings can be rightly argued to be more authentic and it does make for an interesting contrast.

Overall I am very pleased with this collection but have to say I have not yet listened to all 170 discs.

I have found two anomalies, so far, within the Symphony collection. Right off the bat Disc 1 has some surprises for there are twenty tracks and not 12 as noted on the sleeve. The extra tracks are in fact:

SYMPHONY NO.6
IN F major KV43
13 Allegro 5'31
14 Andante 5'13
15 Minuet & Trio 1'57
16 Allegro 3'50

SYMPHONY NO.7
IN D major KV45
17 Molto Allegro 2'38
18 Andante 1'58
19 Minuet & Trio 3'43
20 Molto Allegro 2'44

but why in a Complete Mozart are Symphonies 2 and 3 absent - unless of course they are also hidden on another disc?

Also Symphony No. 40 is repeated on two discs CD9 and CD11.

NEW:

I have just discovered that the music on CD27 Violin Concertos 1-3 does not quite match the legend on the sleeve. Whilst listening I thought this does not match the track list. Sure enough a visit to the Brilliant Classics page on this collection

[..]

sorts things out. Although scrolling to the bottom of the collection track list causes the page to corrupt and become unreadable.

Track 4 is in fact Rondo in B Flat K.269 Allegro with the following track numbers promoted by 1 each in turn.

Of course, surely not all the recordings in this pack are "best in class", but the overall quality of the interpretations is quite good. I have been a "Mozartmaniac" for years, and this "Complete Edition" pack fullfills my expectatives of such a collection of complete Mozart works. And the interactive DVD included in this recording is amazing. Highly recommended.
