A Lot of Beautiful Music for Little Money!

(4 out of 5 stars)
"This two disc set is an incredible bargain, considering it contains more than two hours worth of wonderful chamber music by Mozart expertly performed by the Chamber Orchestra of Europe. The first disc features the famous Gran Partita, and also a short but charming rondo for horn. The second disc has a couple of neglected but very intriguing serenades for wind instruments composed by Mozart during his first years in Vienna. The rich and somber tones of serenade no. 12 are particularly memorable. The sound quality of these cds is first-rate. The extensive liner notes provide listeners with an understanding of the compositions and the historical context in which they were created. A welcome addition to any Mozart collection."
