Mozart's writing allows each player to shine and demonstrates the depth of talent within the ensemble, illustrating why this orchestra has had such extensive success with its previous Mozart recordings.
The works on this disc are full of well-known tunes which demonstrate Mozart's trademark melodic beauty.
Acclaimed oboist, Robin Williams, gives a dazzling performance of the composer's great masterpiece.
This is the fourteenth recording in the orchestra's hugely successful partnership with Linn Records, a series that includes the award-winning Mozart Symphonies recordings with the late Sir Charles Mackerras.
Alexander Janiczek is a highly sought after director, soloist, guest leader and chamber musician who in addition to his appointment at the SCO, is a guest director of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe and Camerata Salzburg.
The Orchestra has a large international fan base following recent performances in Belgium, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Spain, the USA, Portugal and The Netherlands.
The SCO has an impressive recording history including a Grammy nominated set of Brahms Symphonies, winning the Orchestral category of the BBC Awards in 2009 and a 2012 ECHO Klassik Award for its Mozart recordings, in addition to much critical acclaim.
