Notes and Editorial Reviews

In the small discography of the first masterworks of Mozart, recorded from the HMV in the spring of 1955 in Paris. A large part of the merit goes to the approach of Sir Thomas Beecham, who spent years studying Mozart's style and performing his compositions. Lightness, vivacity and equilibrium all distinguishing this version that hasn't been available in the Classical music market for years - a version that has not lost its original value despite half a cetury passing.
