Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Gardiner's sophisticated Mozart symphonies offers all the usual qualities of period instruments: the immediacy of gut strings and reduced-vibrato articulation, rustic sounding woodwind, precariously exciting natural brass and the unmistakable 'thwack' of hard sticks on the timpani...The typically elegant pointing of the second subject in the first movement of No. 29 is a delight. The central movements of No. 33 could be caressed a little more but the finale, here so redolent of Rossini, is sheer foot-tapping magic."

-- David Wilkins, BBC Magazine
