 Period Performance April 30, 2017 By owen  ryan (lakewood, CA) See All My Reviews "Gardiner's period orchestra give an excellent account of Mozart's final work. The size and instrumentation of the English Baroque Soloists produce a sharply honed, transparent sound with a bite and weight. Penguin Guide found this to be ''one of the most powerful performances on record.'' I was fortunate to obtain this in a 2005 reissue as one of The Mozart Collection (Universal Classics Group) at a low price." Report Abuse
