Recorded in the mid-1980s Tate's recordings of the late Mozart symphonies have stood the test of time. Mackerras and the Scottish CO's recordings from 2008-10 have slightly better sound for the trumpets and timpani, but it's the strings, woodwind and horns that matter more in these symphonies and Tate directs performances of near perfection.

Mozart is not a composer for completists: the symphonies before number 25 are clearly the work of a child (albeit a prodigiously talented child). Tate's box set of the complete symphonies is worth buying for the last six alone, and even if you never listen to the early symphonies more than once, his recordings of the late symphonies are ones to treasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tate at his considerable best 23 May 2012
By Jon Miller ('Kirk') - Published on
I chose to review this release rather than the EMI duo which adds #s 40 and 41 in which I find Tate, I think, at less than his best-but at this price no harm trying. The 36 and 38 are replete with repeats, and-as usual with Tate, awash with prominent winds // Klemperer. The tempi sound right here, though some play 36/1 more quickly (eg Jochum twice). Slow
movements are mined but still move. #38 here reminds me of Klemperer's great Testament 38. Tate's Mozart is well worth pursuing. All are no less than very good, but I am somewhat less enchanted by his 29,31, 34 (cf Szell and Bohm),40 and 41. Also highly recommended: Tate's Haydn 99-104 which // this Mozart (his 93-98 I find definitely less effective). The ECO is superb in this Mozart and his
Haydn 99-104.

Peers: #36 Jochum (BRSO and RCO), Kubelik (BRSO), Leitner (BRSO), Dohnanyi (Cleveland)
#38 Jochum (RCO), Dohnanyi, Klemperer (Testament not EMI), Kubelik (BRSO), Sawallisch (Czech PO),Bohm (BPO, not the second VPO), Maag/LSO
Rankings #1-5 #36:Leitner/BRS0, Jochum/BRS0, Jochum/RCO, Tate, Kubelik, Dohnanyi
#38: Jochum/RCO, Klemperer/Testament, Tate, Dohnanyi, Maag, Kubelik
