Notes and Editorial Reviews

"[Symphony] No. 25 is a terse and taut performance in the best classical tradition. DG's recordings, taken from live performances, relate the occasions with satisfying impact. Even with the pile of Mozart symphony discs on the market, Bernstein's compelling renditions easily command your attention and warrant your purchase."

 Nothing else compares October 21, 2014 By M. Johnson (Simi Valley, CA) See All My Reviews "I thought Sir Neville Marriner had these recordings up his sleeve. Lenny knocks him out of the orchestra pit! Clear, precise, moving, unison. Truly a flawless recording." Report Abuse
 Bernstein's excellent Mozart June 28, 2014 By owen  r. (lakewood, CA) See All My Reviews "Bernstein and the Vienna Phil. Honor the 17 year old genius' early symphonies in a well recorded disc." Report Abuse
 Among the finest available April 10, 2013 By Ralph Miller (Vallejo, CA) See All My Reviews "Bought this one mainly for No.25 in G minor since I already have a few versions of the other one. I love G. Szell as the gold standard for Mozart symphonies, but Bernstein is fully his equal in these, with crisp tempos and incisive voices. Beautiful stuff, and the fine, expressive version of the Clarinet Concerto is a bonus. Buy it, you won't be sorry." Report Abuse
