Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is good Mozart - lithe, detailed, delicately poised, sparkling, nicely sprung and full of life. At Naxos's low prices, its value is unexcelled.

– American Record Guide

The complete musical satisfaction provided by the four Italian-overture symphonies is due to the intrinsic fullness and vigour of the orchestration, and to the NCO's lively performances.
