2 cd by Decca , a most enjoyable set, played with feeling. My favourite is k250 haffner. Try mov 2 andante, the most perfect piece of music, full of musicality and not bettered in my opinion.still,the same could be said for most Mozart work. Are we not fortunate to be able to listen to his genius ? Enjoy. Michael j .

I have just finishes listening to this excellent duo disc of mozart serenades.Marriner and the Acadamy of St Martin and the Fields give sparkling performances of these joyous works.If you have had a bad day at work i recommend putting any of the works on and the tension will just ease away.Superbly recorded and at a great price you cant go wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and understated 6 Mar. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A great introduction to several of Mozart's great masterpieces including the beloved Eine Kleine Nachtmusik as well as the Posthorn and other great serenades, all played with grace, meticulousness, and understatement by Sir Neville and the Academy. This great orchestra never goes over the top,and lets the music speak for itself. There may be more dramatic versions by larger orchestras, but these get to the essence of the music and let it speak, quitely and beautifully, for itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mozart of character and distinction 5 Nov. 2001
By Christian Marquess - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
These are very fine performances by one of the leading conductors and ensembles of our time. Ensemble is crisp, phrasing is lovely, and the tempos are superbly judged. The recording is good, too, set in a glowing acoustic. At two discs for the price of one this simply can't be beat.

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb collection of Mozart's finest 14 April 2005
By Alan Lekan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Serenades as these were commissioned by patrons for some nice background music for significant outdoor events (weddings, public celebrations). But, Mozart being Mozart, he went beyond the call in poured out fantastic displays of musical diversity and melodies in this music that went far beyond mere "wallpaper compositions." The four most popular of his serenades are suberbly recorded on these two discs. Each is a galante work of art - full of vivacity, celebration, youthful enthusiasm and skillful composition for a then young Mozart. They are some of the most upbeat and happy music Mozart wrote and showcase his talents at his galante finest. While any individual serenade might be slightly better performed by another ensemble, it is unlikely one will find a better complete set than these. The recorded sound is top notch and the vibrant performaces by the ASMF completely fitting to the type of celebratory music. Conductor Sir Neville Marriner is well-known for his affinity for Mozart and these recordings show that by their well-chosen tempos, tasteful accuntuations and smooth, lyrical flow throughout. A wonderful survey of Mozart's serenades most fitting for a sunny afternoon at home or festive occasion.

5.0 out of 5 stars First rate recordings 15 Dec. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Marriner, a great Mozart conductor, leads the AMSF in these masterpieces. All of the recordings are wonderful with well-judged tempos. The string section of the orchestra distinguish themselves. Philips has warm sound and good liner notes. The Serenata Notturna and Posthorn serenades were love at first hearing for me, and these recordings are the perfect place to look. I don't like all of the Haffner serenade, but some of the movements are gorgeous. For the ambitious collectors, Marriner's earlier Eine Kleine Nachtmusik on EMI is even better than this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent performances with great sound quality 30 Sept. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Although analog recordings from the mid-80's, these have been digitally remastered and offer bright crisp sound along with a well-defined "stage presence" as if the orchestra were right there in your room. Marriner conducts the ASMF and their modern instruments with grace and elegance, letting the music carry you away. I have no idea what the "In The Fields" part of Academy Of St Martin's name means, but in fact if you close your eyes and use your imagination just a wee bit, you'll find yourself sitting among beautiful fields listening to this sublime music!
If you prefer period instruments, Manze and the English Concert have just released "Night Music" on the Harmonia Mundi label, which features excellent digital recordings of two of Mozart's serenades: Eine Kleine Nachtmusik and Seranata Notturna, as well as other Mozart compositions that Manze felt fit within the theme of night music.
