Notes and Editorial Reviews

"These are wonderful Mozart performances, not too slow (as you might have feared) even when the tempos are on the stately side, as in the last two symphonies. The finale of the Jupiter, for example, has so much contrapuntal interest that the opportunity to hear more of the music as it passes by is a rewarding experience."
