Reco for Mozart Violin Concertos


Recommended Posts

Hello,

Question for Mozart Violin concertos, especially no 3, 4 and 5th. What do you recommend in modern sound?

 

I have listen so far to Gramiaux (nice performance, but old sound), Julia Fisher, ok, but weird miking and dull sound and Tognetti/ACO - that's quite nice imho. There will be also upcoming PentaTone recording with Arabella Streinbacher, but hard to say anything yet.

 

Any suggestions?

Amongst any other labels/releases? I know that sound quality of this recording is awesome, but it didn't get too much echo over the classical critics reviews somehow, don't know why?

I'm not such a big fan of most of the violin concertos. Keep in mind that they were all written before Mozart was 19.

 

One exception is the Sinfonia Concertante, which I can recommend on this record, both musically and sonically:

If you prefer having the violin concertos as well, I can recommend this version by the great late Abbado (SQ good, but not outstanding):

For Rachel I agree with you 100%. I've just recently bought her album with Pavlo Beznosiuk and Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment playing Haydn and Mozart - exceptional!

 

For the violin concertos I quite enjoy the music theme through all of them, so I thought that would be nice to get these pieces by the regarded and recommended players. I will listen to Abaddo and Thorsen agan. So far, I like the Tognetti interpretation with ACO: eClassical - Mozart ? Violin Concertos

 

BTW, for me its Grieg album is exceptional as well: eClassical - Grieg · Music for String Orchestra so I tried to give them a go for Mozart - however not decided yet.

There are certainly other alternatives worth checking out, e.g. Tetzlaff, Ehnes, or the 2006 recording of Anne Sophie Mutter with the LSO.

 

Mozart: The 5 Violin Concertos | Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart par Christian Tetzlaff*– Télécharger et écouter l'album

 

This guy I don't know - will check it out later on.
