Notes and Editorial Reviews

Leopold Mozart has only survived throughout history in fragments. The large supply of secular instrumental music on which he prided himself in 1757, has been irrevocably lost. Leopold's son, Wolfgang dismantled and auctioned off his things as to continue caring for his own family at the time. In the recording presented here, a listener can gain an overall impression of the composer's oeuvre. Reinhard Goebel leads the Bayerische Kammerphilharmonie in discovering these forgotten masterpieces. Leopold Mozart has only survived throughout history in fragments.

 A balanced composer portrait September 21, 2016 By Ralph Graves (Hood, VA) See All My Reviews "This new release presents three facets of Leopold's compositions. (The fame of his son so overshadows that I feel I have to refer to Leopold by his first name to avoid confusion with THE Mozart.) Included are a serenade, and concerto, and a symphony, representing light music, solo instrumental writing, and a complex work. The Symphony in G major is the "New" Lambach Symphony. For a while was thought have been written by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Current scholarship attributes it to Leopold. The 20-minute piece is a fully-developed rococo symphony. When it was assumed to by W.A. Mozart, its quality was unquestioned. As a Leopold composition, it makes one rethink the assumption that Leopold was but a mediocre talent. The Bavarian Chamber Philharmonic, under the baton of Reinhard Goebel, turn in first-rate performances of these works. If you only know Leopold through recordings of his "Toy" Symphony, this may cause you to revise your opinion of the elder Mozart." Report Abuse
