Notes and Editorial Reviews

More than three decades have elapsed since Frans Brüggen set down his earlier visions of Mozart's symphonies with his Orchestra of the 18th Century. Now, he has chosen to release his new views of these contrasting yet complementary works as part of his Grand Tour on Glossa. The Dutch maestro and his band have regularly engaged with the music of the Salzburg genius and the symphonies have frequently appeared in their concert schedules. If the precise, original performing locations for these symphonies remain elusive, the three works: 'Jupiter', K551, the E flat major, K543, and that “evergreen study in the key of G minor”, K550, known by people all around the world as 'Mozart 40', all clamour for constant and fresh interpretations and Read more these are precisely what Frans Brüggen delivers.
