Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Mozart is one of the most enduringly popular classical composers. He is responsible for over 600 works, many acknowledged as pinnacles of symphonic, concertante, chamber, piano, operatic, and choral music.

This recording was named BBC Music Magazine's one of '5 Essential Works by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart' by BBC Music Magazine in 2012 as well as being a winner at the 2009 Classical BRIT Awards (Critics' Award 2009) and the 2009 BBC Music Magazine Awards (Disc of the Year Award and Orchestral Award).

In their original review BBC Music Magazine stated: ‘These performances are so exhilarating that I listened to all four symphonies straight through at a first hearing, mesmerised by the variety and intensity of the music itself, sounding here completely fresh, and the virtually flawless renderings by the excellent Scottish Chamber Orchestra, with Sir Charles Mackerras at his most penetrating.'
