„Trevor Pinnock weist alle Meriten eines großen Mozart-Interpreten auf: Er trifft nicht nur diese aparte klangliche Identität ganz genau, er hat auch ein Gespür für die delikate Phrasierung und für den rhythmischen Impuls, für den Swing dieser Musik - gut zu hören im Finale."

„brillanten...verschwenderisch farbreichen Spiel und einem ebenso beschwingten wie dynamisch reichen Musizieren, einer wunderbaren Klangtransparenz und viel Schwung blühen beide Werke auf und werden zum Maßstab für elegant und raffinierte Bläserkultur.“

Royal Academy of Music Soloists Ensemble & Trevor Pinnock - Mozart: Gran Partita - Spiegel


18 September 2016
Spiegel
Werner Theurich

Mozart's 'Gran Partita' is even more moving when Trevor Pinnock conducts this fascinating piece for wind instruments.

The musicians of Pinnock's Academy ensemble come from Britain's oldest conservatory (founded 1822) and belong to the elite of global chamber musicians already at their student time. Highest competence in all sections.

The superior greatness of the 'Gran Partita' is in the best hands with Pinnock's academics. They lift the exceptional piece up to wind instrument's heaven.
