I have to think of this assemblage of pieces by Mozart conducted by Bernhard Paumgartner as a bit of a hodge-podge. Recorded in mono between 1953 and 1957, it was presumably assembled for collectors who probably already have Paumgartner’s “Jupiter” Symphony, for instance, his concertos with Arthur Grumiaux and Clara Haskil, or his horn concertos. Yet his range of Mozart recordings made in a few years in the ’50s is impressive, and this collection of sometimes relatively obscure Mozart will duplicate no other. Paumgartner, who would have been 125 this year, dedicated his life to Mozart and to Salzburg. He moved to Salzburg in 1917 where he was the director of the Mozarteum for 40 years, excepting (for which I am thankful) the years of Nazi rule. In 1951, he created the Camerata Academica that performs the one symphony found here and the “Colloredo” Serenade (K 203) as well as some shorter works. He concertized regularly in Salzburg and, during these same years, recorded with the Vienna Philharmonic on Philips.


He’s as expert a Mozartian as anyone of his time. These recordings are notable for their decorum, their clear textures, and lack of eccentricity. There is a bit of fierceness in the minuet of the Symphony in C Minor: Paumgartner’s Mozart is elegant but doesn’t lack backbone. Or zest, which we hear in the last movement of the same symphony. The other longer work here is the “Colloredo” Serenade, which is just as appealing. The minuets (K 463) are played broadly, and joyously. But to my ears, the highlight of this collection is the scene Non piu, tutto ascolta sung marvelously by the tenor Leopold Simoneau. This is a glorious performance of rarely heard music. There’s much else here for fans of Mozart and of Paumgartner.
