Customer Reviews

A real gemExcellent performances of Mozart symphonies abound. Bohm with the Berlin Philharmonic, Marriner with the smaller Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, and Walter with the Columbia Symphony are just three examples, each with its own special appeal. These performances by Mackerras and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra (and the more recent ones of symphonies 29, 31, 32, 35, and 36) are certainly superb as well. Those of us accustomed to collecting several different perspectives on music we love will want to have the Linn versions, too. The SACD sound is glorious, and in these recordings it is also an example of the true benefit of SACD: the far greater sampling rate provides detail, clarity, and "air" around the music. To me, whether sound effects are coming from all directions is irrelevant. Give me pure, clear, defined two-channel, and I'm happy.5So very pretty, so detailed, so human in scaleThese seem less radical that Mackerras and Beethoven, perhaps because smaller forces seem more suited to an earlier classical tradition. With Beethoven (and to my mind, the best HIP Beethoven is Immerseel), the revelation of detail renders the music more disturbing. Here, there's a sense, if anything, of deeper calm and pervasive elegance, no surrender to the vulgarity of gigantism. These are genuinely beautiful, and what is best here, as in so many HIP renderings of symphonic music, is that the musically bold never appears as musical heroism. The Pinnock HIP traversal is also fine.5Excellent interpretations in demonstration soundI've enjoyed Mackerras' mozart for a while now, having owned and enjoyed his Mozart symphony cycle with the Prague Chamber Orchestra for some time. One of my problems with that set was the somewhat disappointing, bottom-heavy sound, which I found robbed the music of its inherently songful quality. Still, I liked his interpretations, which offered a fresh, historically-informed view on Mozart using modern instruments. Here Mackerras has revised his approach, still using modern strings and winds, but period brass. Intriguing. So when I finally acquired an SACD player, I looked forward to hearing him again in improved sound. I was not disappointed.I'd largely say Mackerras has improved upon his earlier versions of these symphonies, benefitting from superior recorded sound and execution from his Scottish forces. Tempi are still quick - this is driven Mozart that in many ways harkens back to Leinsdorf and Szell, while simultaneously looking forward - but he's learned to take a breath now and then. He still takes the slow introduction of No. 39 a little fast for my taste, but I find just about everything else here to be very musical and idiomatic. I would add that the period brass is a bit more forward mic'd, and it often adds excitement. Quite simply, there's not a dud in the bunch. I wouldn't say they're the best of the best - I've heard versions by conductors as varied as Bohm, Kubelik, Szell, Walter, Maag, Fricsay, Reiner and Klemperer which I'd rate higher, but everything here is consistently good across the board, and is superior sonically to any of the aforementioned recordings. Mackerras also takes all of the repeats, for those that care.But onto the item that made this disc a real winner for me: the sound. If you happen to have an SACD player, this disc is an absolute must-have. In multichannel surround, it will quite literally knock your socks off. The double-basses, kettle drums, all that stuff that gets muddy on CDs? It's up front and in your face, prominent and defined like I've never heard before outside of a concert hall. You are unlikely to hear greater detail in the fugal finale of the Jupiter anywhere else, and the format really allows one to fully appreciate Mozart's total mastery of harmony and counterpoint in these, the crown jewels of his symphonic output. I've also listened to the standard CD layer, and I'm happy to report that the sound is still outstanding. I'll be keeping my eye out for Linn discs in the future, as this is one of the very best sounding SACDs I own. I'd also add that the packaging is fine, no crummy paper sleeves, and includes detailed and informative liner notes.In short: this is a great disc, deserving of the many awards and accolades heaped on it. A strong recommendation from me, especially folks who have an SACD player at their disposal.5Absolutely superbThis is the best recording of the Jupiter.The clarity and acoustics are superb.There is transparency to all the lines Mozart wrote because the parts aren't doubled or tripled.Spirited , insightful interpretation.5Wonderful sounding 5.1Mozart is one of my favourite classical composers and this is a great collection.I found the 5.1 mix to really open up the soundfield and give the orchestra beautiful definition.5Spectacular sound quality on this SACD containing Superb Performances of Symphonies 38-41In terms of audio quality this is a spectacular SACD with Charles Mackerras conducting the Scottish Chamber Orchestra in performing arguably Mozart s most famous Symphonies. I ve purchased over 50 SACDs in the past 18 months. Almost all offer significantly greater clarity and detail but this 2-SACD set ranks among the very best. Moreover Mackerras, to my ear, provides superb interpretations of Mozart s Symphonies. His complete Mozart Symphony cycle with the Prague Chamber Orchestra on regular CDs from Telarc set a very high standard as Telarc, at least at that time (before, so I understand, they were bought out and the quality of their recordings went down), typically produced among the highest audio quality CDs on the market. Mackerras performance with the Scottish Symphony is similarly superb and the audio quality of this 2-CD set is even better than the Telarc cycle.Two additional notes. First, while Mackerras other available SACD set a 2-SACD set containing the 29th, 31st, 32nd, 35th and 36th Symphonies is very enjoyable, the sound quality on that set, while very good, is not as vibrant as the sound on this set (an A or A- as opposed to an A+ ). Second, to my ear, Adam Fischer and the Danish National Chamber Orchestra also offer a marvelous SACD cycle of the Mozart Symphonies which are available in single SACD packages. Since both are, in my opinion, marvelous, listeners may want to examine the Symphonies offered on each individual CD or CD-set and pick the SACD, regardless of conductor/orchestra, which contains the symphonies they prefer.5Unsurpassed versions of these symphoniesBefore I purchased these recordings, I went back and listened to Mackerras' own recordings of these symphonies on Telarc with the Prague Chamber Orchestra. These more recent recordings with the Scottish band are preferable in every way, but especially sonically. These are brilliant, alert, spirited accounts that leave you with a new appreciation for Mozart, but also with the fine musicians of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra. The tempi chosen always seem just right, and the playing style is period informed but not overly so. I enjoyed the brass particularly. My one small reservation is in the finale of the Jupiter, where the "boomyness" of the timpani and brass overwhelm and blur the strings a bit. Overall I prefer these recordings to other versions I own including Bernstein, Szell, Marriner, and Maazel.5Wonderful treasure from Mozart and MackerrasWhat a great treasure Mozart has left us with these four symphonies. Bruno Walter's Columbia recording with the Philharmonic-Symphony Orchestra of New York of symphony 41 has been a favorite since the fifties. Now I can also enjoy Mackerras' leading wonderful performances of four symphonies in detailed and spacious sound recordings. As an amateur instrumental play I must not comment above my pay grade, but these tempos seem just right. The Scottish Chamber Orchestra plays with great precision and musical feeling. Wonderful detail from all sections of the orchestra is brought out appropriately to contribute to the whole.A particular pleasure in these performances is the great delicacy of playing from the musicians without loss of any dynamic range or emphasis required by the composer or the conductor. Heartily recommended.5Mozart via ScotlandForget reading the reviews - get these CDs. All the superlatives in the language can't express the exquisite music that awaits you when you play these recordings. Superb musicians led by an astute conductor whose heart is in it, that is a given. No cerebral Mozart here. The size of the orchestra is just right to clearly display the color and instrumental lines to perfection. If one could hear what Mozart heard in his head when he composed these symphonies, this surely must be it. As to the recording, Telarc move over; there is a new company exceeding the quality of your product in spades. These are the best recordings I have ever heard, and I have heard a lot. I pray that Linn continues to produce these CDs. I am going to keep this short because I want to settle in and listen to these beautiful symphonies again. And again.5known for the finest quality recordings and five-figure audio systems to play them ...Linn, known for the finest quality recordings and five-figure audio systems to play them on, had created some Mozart recording of truly outstanding quality--the best I have heard. The Scottish Chamber Orchestra's performances live up to the astonishing technical quality of the recordings. Using high quality headphones (AKG K702 with Schiit Audio Valhalla tube amplifier), this was audio Nirvana that made Mozart sound almost as good as Beethoven. :-) Also see the companion title "Mozart Symphonies 29, 31 (Paris), 32, 35 (Haffner) & 36 (Linz)."5
