Required Mozart

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD has been around for at least 15 years, possibly longer. It is one of the best compilation of Mozart overtures available. Hans Vonk, who died not too long ago, was an outstanding Mozart conductor. The Dresden Statskapelle is one of the world's greatest orchestras. For 3 dollars, you get great music, great conducting and incredible playing. I am sure many people have passed up this CD because they thought the price was too low and it couldn't possibly be any good. They were simply being greedy. I have a very large CD collection because I am always willing to sacrifice 3 dollars in the quest of great music. Sometimes I lose but most of the time, my 3 bucks is well invested. And especially this time. You could spend a lot more and get a lot less.
This is a great CD

"I haven't heard many recordings of Mozart's Overtures, but this is the best that I have heard. Hans Vonk and the orchestra do a wonderful job on this CD. I highly recommend this CD for it's price and the great music that it has on it."

"I own a lot of Mozart recordings, and this is one of the most exciting discs in my collection. The first track, an absolutely riveting performance of the overture from the Magic Flute, sets the tone for entire cd. I think Mozart would be very proud of this orchestra and conductor, the late Hans Vonk. Many of Mozart's most famous overtures are featured here, but there are also a few from his early operatic works, including the thrilling Ascanio in Alba, which he composed in 1771 when he was only 15 years old! The sound quality is very crisp and clear. This cd is worth far more than the very low price!"
