W.A. Mozart: 45 symfonier

02 December 2016  Ionarts
Jens F. Laurson

I would suggest starting even a little earlier than K.110, just to check in on Johnson. That’s best done with Adam Fischer’s very easily overlooked and marvelous CDs (i.e. “Complete Symphonies, volume 2”, which contains Nos.6, 7, 7a “Old Lambach”, 8 and “No.55” (K.43, 45, 45a, 48 & 45b ) of middle-early Mozart Symphonies, youthful vigor and crisp lightness of which is the main feature—not just Mozart’s but especially Fischer’s interpretations. Volume 8 is another gem, opening with a very lively rendition of K.201 that will invite you to dance along, all the way (jokes or not), at the price of a little—but not much—elegance. Next to Fischer, even Hogwood and Marriner sound awfully well-mannered. Volume 6 is very good (if perhaps not quite gelling as amazingly as those that were recorded late; the numbers of the volumes incidentally not connoting chronology of recording) and convenient for offering K.132 and 134. Comparing Fischer in K.110 to single-disc alternatives like Nicholas Ward (Naxos) and Roger Norrington (Hänssler) shows his account to have more nuanced phrasing, to be rhythmically more compelling, and decidedly more lively (perhaps just a touch fast in the finale)… so if you are interested in that symphony outside a complete box, Dacapo’s Volume 4 of the Mozart Symphonies is the way to go. I shy away from recommending box sets, for many reasons (less concentrated listening and less focused enjoyment; also less necessary in an age of streaming and often less specific in their qualities, for their convenient catch-all nature. Although at this point, you might as well consider their whole set all the same, which is the best modern set I know.
