Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Mozart city of Salzburg is still home to an orchestra founded in 1841 by the composer‘s widow Constanze and two sons Xaver and Karl: the Mozarteum Orchestra Salzburg. British conductor Ivor Bolton – whose performances of baroque operas by Monteverdi, Handel and Gluck are always enthusiastically received by Munich State Opera audiences – has been the Mozarteum Orchestra‘s GMD since 2004. This release presents W.A. Mozart‘s six late symphonies, performed by the Mozarteum Orchestra under Bolton as well as his predecessor Hubert Soudant. This compact Mozart package with the composer‘s core repertoire on three CDs presents a fresh and meticulously played “Mozart from Salzburg”.
