Notes and Editorial Reviews

Among the many recordings of the complete Mozart Violin Concertos, this one, with the late Iona Brown directing the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields from the violin, has lain dormant for far too long. Gramophone magazine welcomed it with the words: "a series which is outstanding for its freshness and spontaneity in a highly-competitive field. As before, the ASMF respond instinctively to [Iona Brown's] skilled direction, and the recording is exemplary". This release includes Mozart's first effort at a Violin Concerto as well as two of the most popular ? the breezy Third Concerto and the colourful Fifth, also known as the 'Turkish'.
