Notes and Editorial Reviews

Eine kleine Nachtmusik hardly needs yet another recording, any more than does the early three-movement 'Divertimento' (the title is not Mozart's own and is patently inappropriate), K136; but it is comparatively rarely that we hear either work played by single strings, in which form they sound best, and equally rarely that we hear them played with such finesse as they are here by the chamber ensemble of the ASMF. Joined by two intrepid horn players, these expert string players give an equally polished account of Ein musikalischer Spass ("A musical joke"), Mozart's dig at inept composers and sloppy performers: almost too polished, in fact, for the 'joke' to ring quite true.

-- Gramophone [5/1985]
