Album information

The Scottish Chamber Orchestra and Alexander Janiczek attentively re-discover the music produced during Mozart's years in Salzburg.

Director Alexander Janiczek proves the perfect choice to direct the music of his fellow Austrian as he delivers a superb performance in this, his second, recording with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra. A disc of wonderfully atmospheric music impressively and thoughtfully interpreted by the Scottish Chamber Orchestra with original cadenzas by Alexander Janiczek. 

K. 185, also known as the 'Andretter' Serenade, is notable for being the first Serenade to include a solo violin, played here by director Alexander Janiczek. The Divertimento, or Concerto, K. 113 is significant as the first time Mozart had written for the clarinet, an instrument that was to become highly significant in future compositions.
