 Somewhat bland recording of good perfrmances July 26, 2012 By Gail M. (Goleta, CA) See All My Reviews "This was the first disk I purchased of these early Mozart symphonies (#15 - #19). These works contain interesting ideas, and they make entertaining listening. The recording is clear and detailed, in spite of considerable reverberation in the room of these performances. But after a few minutes listening, one becomes aware of a lack of contrast between the sounds of the instrument groups. This recording heavily favors the violins, with the lower strings often hidden. And the horns and winds are strangely hard to hear! So the usual witty conversations among the instruments that characterize Mozart's style are muffled. It's hard to tell if the problem is the recording or failure of conductor Claudio Scimone to balance his players in I Solisti Veneti. Except for Symphonies #17 and #19, this disk msut compete with the wonderful set by Karl Boehm, which has better balance as well as fine playing." Report Abuse
