NEW RELEASE: MOZART SYMPHONIES CD

cd-mozart-400

This Mozart Symphonies CD features two of Mozart’s most famous works, both in G Minor. Symphony No. 25 was recorded by Eric Arunas on January 28, 2017 and Symphony No. 40 was recorded on April 29, 2016.

The two Mozart symphonies on this CD are breathtakingly performed by Maestro Hall and his Camerata Chicago. The music is delivered with great vivacity and bounce, with brisk tempi that never seem too fast but are always energetic. The slow movements are played with grace and a deeply felt passion that engages the listeners at all times and Maestro Hall’s exquisite understanding of the 18th Century style is palpable throughout. The recording itself is beautifully and richly captured by Eric Arunas, one of the finest classical music engineers in the country.  Recordings of these symphonies have been made by the greatest orchestras in the world but it would be difficult to find one as good as this one.” Steve Robinson, Former Executive Vice President, 98.7WFMT.
