The "Romantic" Mozart
Raul Galarza | San Jose, San Jose Costa Rica | 05/25/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It is true that the versions played in this record of the two Mozart's latest symphonies are slow.But, if we listen to Mozart in his final works, everyone realizes that he became more serious and achieved a very interesting maturiness. One could think that he had some ideas about and, why not, perhaps he was one of the precursors of the next musical era: the Romantic.This new era features serious and longer works from various composers.In this record Giulini presents a "romantic" interpretation of the latests and maybe greatest symphonic works of Mozart.It is consistent through all the disc and is a very interesting version in which you can imagine Mozart alive beyond 35, in other words, as a competitor of Beethoven.The quality of the recording is superb and the sound of the Berlin Philharmonic is flawlessListen to Mozart alive!"
Unusual but beautiful mozart
aurelius | 02/05/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"the sincere emotion of giulini and the gorgeous berlin philharmonic united in these performances (in the jesus christus kirche, not the philharmonie) to produce one of the most distinct and unusual versions of mozart 40 and 41 on record. the tempi are quite slow throughout, but the power and intention of the music never falters. inner voices are amazingly clear; the standard of ensemble is unbelievably good. this is a recording for those who are interested in a lush, romantic approach to mozart."
Six stars instead of five !!!
Jose Proano | Berlin, Brandemburg Germany | 03/13/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I just want to add that Giulini's approach, as one of the reviewers said, is unusual, but that fact makes it different in comparison to the more "standard" performances that people are used to listen to. Considering this two symphonies as very romatic works for their conception, the way how they have been performed in this recording is perfectly valid, where the details of the composition are beautifully treated and highlighted. Mozart's music -specially his last works- must not only be enjoyed with fast tempos, because the marvelous details get lost. As a result of this Giulini's performance we have a different Mozart sound, solemn and sublime, "pre"-announcing -and I agree with the words of one of the reviewers- what Beethoven would bring with his musical revolution. This recording is not for everyone. But if you want to face an other musical approach towards Mozart's conceptions and to appreciate -as Giulini does- the real value that lies behind each Mozart's note, the acquisition of this recording will be worth and maybe you will rate it with six stars instead of five."
