MOZART Symphonies 28-36, 38-41 Davis 4759120
These readings prove just as excellent as they would appear to be on paper. The playing of the Staatskapelle Dresden is beyond stunning, with the strings especially crisp. The Dresden winds . . . are remarkable here. The sound, mostly early digital, is the icing on the cake. The whole set sounds wonderful even on bad speakers . . . Davis chooses sensibly deliberate tempos throughout, deciding to rely on his own abilities in Classical repertoire and leaning on his great ensemble . . . An exceptional box of music, allowing you to hear Mozart's late symphonies in the absolute best light possible. Get it while you still can!
