Notes and Editorial Reviews

Inspired by his recent stay in Italy, and back at the court of the Archbishop of Salzburg, the 17-year-old Mozart composed five symphonies in 1773-74; Nos 25, 26 and 29 were among them. These inventive, finely proportioned works achieve a fusion between the light, three-movement sinfonia, or Italian overture, and the German symphony – denser, usually in four movements, and including a minuet. French conductor Jérémie Rohrer, born in Paris in 1973, worked with Marc Minkowski, William Christie and Christopher Hogwood before founding Le Cercle de l’Harmonie in April 2005 with the violinist Julien Chavin and a number of close colleagues. The group focuses on orchestral and operatic repertoire of the late 18th century and has collaborated with Read more dazzling German soprano Diana Damrau on two Virgin Classics releases: Arie de bravura by Mozart, Salieri and Righini, which (following the highest praise in Gramophone, Opera News, Diapason, Télérama, Opéra International, Classica Repertoire, and a Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik) has sold 25,000 copies around the world, and the recently released all-Mozart album Donna. The first of these two releases prompted the German magazine Das Opernglas to praise conductor and orchestra with these words: “The orchestra makes the most of all the moods in these scores, bringing power and succulence, but also an exceptional sense for nuance, while the French newspaper Libération said: “It is ages since we heard Mozart’s harmony exalted to such mouthwatering effect."
