Julien Chauvin & Andreas Staier - Mozart: Piano Concerto No. 23, Symphony No. 40 & Don Giovanni Overture - Gramophone

Julien Chauvin and Le Concert de la Loge reprise the overture-concerto-symphony formula of their previous Mozart recording with a coupling of clarinet-drenched orchestral works and opening with a performance of the Don Giovanni Overture that is light on its feet, the roar of the greasepaint vividly perceptible ... The G minor Symphony receives a truly involving reading, with plenty of imaginative phrasing and sufficient focus on the winds – the all-important clarinets and horns especially.
