CD Reviews

Heart's content!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I place the Gran Partita, K. 361, as Top Ten Mozart, and it's played with such joy here, I was almost taken aback. I have three other versions, and this one just may be my favorite. One version is all shadows, which is cool, but oh! the joy in the present version. K. 375 and K. 388 are played perfectly too. The good thing about this set is they have a lot of hard-to-find pieces for wind. To me, Mozart was unparalled at wind writing. The textures! The tones! It's too good to be true. Hooray!"
A wonderful collection

"People often talk about the poignant and elegant qualities of Mozart's music, but I don't often much hear people discuss the humor of the man's work.

As immortal as he is, I can't help but see him as "a shape-shifting imp of the perverse," often mocking listeners and teasing the trained ear more than it can stand. I don't know when I first started to hear the humor, perhaps I was around twenty-five or so, but I suppose I only noticed it due to the questioning I received when I started laughing in the midst of a recording or performance.

The precocious child is present in everything I've heard, be it sonata, symphony, or serenade. Even the most melancholic expressions seem animated by the wily puppet-master's hands... and often are we too moved to notice.

Serenade in C minor and Serenade in E flat are among his most overlooked masterpieces. They used to be available in a 3cd set, but it looks as if you now have to buy the complete set for some reason. No worries, though, there's only more to digest, more to discuss... and more to smirk at.
