 A Most Terrific Disc!!! September 2, 2012 By Richard F. Buckley (Jefferson Hills, PA) See All My Reviews "This recording is, as far as I am concerned, by far the most outstanding rendition of the two selections available. Sir Charles Mackerras and The Prague Chamber Orchestra present these pieces exactly as Mozart would have preferred, if he had a chance. When the composer calls for "Allegro con spirito," they floor the gas pedal. When "Andante" is called for, they gently apply the brakes.

Ein Kleine Nachtmusik was originally written with five movements, but one was somehow misplaced, and only four have made it through the generations. This old chestnut is one of Mozart's most beloved works.

The "Posthorn" Serenade is seven glorious movements, and is named for the Posthorn Solo, a feature of the sixth movement expertly crafted by the soloist, Zdenek Tylsar.

This CD will bring over an hour of beautiful music professionally delivered to your ears. Don't hesitate! Get it now!"
