 Delightful Mozart Concerti from Philly March 12, 2014 By Robert Bubeck (Midland, MI) See All My Reviews "NOTE: At the time of this writing (March 12, 2014) there is an error in Arkiv’s listing of contents in this 3 CD set. Instead of the Serenade no 6 in D major, K 239 Serenata notturna, this album contains the Sinfonia concertante for Oboe, Clarinet, Horn, Bassoon, and orchestra in E flat Major K 297B. REVIEW: Here is a collection of fine performances of Mozart concerti starring some of the greatest first chair wind instrument players ever to grace a symphony orchestra. The recordings date from 1957 to 1962 – the Golden Era of the Philadelphia Orchestra under Eugene Ormandy, who was always the alert and collaborative orchestral accompanist and is on hand demonstrating that, yes indeed, he could and did conduct Mozart very well. When was it ever that John de Lancie was anything less than an absolute delight?! The Concerto for Oboe and Orchestra in C major, K 314 does not disappoint. William Kincaid and Bernard Garfield turn in marvelous performances in the flute and bassoon concerti, K 313 and K 191, respectively. Although not likely to supplant for many the Brain 1954 outings of the four horn concertos, Mason Jones gave thoughtful performances in which the Philadelphia strings seemingly dance around the soloist in a celebratory display of harmonious interplay. The competition in the Concerto for Clarinet and Orchestra K 622 sweep stakes is pretty hot and heavy, but Anthony Gigliotti brought some new insights to this piece for this listener. Interestingly, the best recording both artistically and sonically of the set is the earliest – the Sinfonia concertante for Oboe, Clarinet, Horn, Bassoon, and orchestra in E flat Major K 297B from 1957. The responsiveness and pacing between the soloists and, in turn, Ormandy and the Philadelphians is just wonderful. Given that many modern symphony orchestras have a tendency to produce somewhat similar ‘sound’, this set offers an opportunity to acquaint (or reacquaint) oneself with some of the magic of a musical ensemble that was and is gloriously recognizable, made evident here via nine delightful Mozart pieces that provide a revelatory alternative to full force Romantic Russians."
