Additional Information

The Scottish Chamber Orchestra continues their hugely successful series of Mozart recordings, following on from Mozart Symphonies 38-41. Austrian-born violinist Alexander Janiczek directs the Orchestra in a fine performance of the rarely recorded Colloredo Serenade and Divertimento K.251. Originally released in 2008, Mozart: Colloredo Serenade K.203 and Divertimento K.251 has been re-issued as part of Linns ECHO series which offers a second chance to enjoy the best of the labels award-winning catalogue. The Colloredo Serenade, written for Hieronymous, Count von Colloredo, who was elected Prince-Archbishop of Salzburg in 1772, shows the eighteen-year-old Mozart writing in an easy, informal style, but showing great originality. The Divertimento K.251, in the same key as the Serenade and similarly designed for summer entertainment, is full of spirited, catchy themes and dance music. It contains some delightful surprises! The Orchestra uses a stylish combination of modern instruments (except for natural trumpets), and period influences such as selective vibrato that results in clear textures and an exciting, entertaining performance in the natural acoustic of Greyfriars Kirk, Edinburgh. The SCOs previous Mozart recordings have been critically acclaimed; Mozart Wind Concertos consistently received four and five star reviews and BBC Music Magazine named Mozart Requiem a Benchmark Recording in January 2007 whilst Mozart Symphonies 38-41 won BBC Disc of the Year in 2010. Having previously led the orchestra Alexander Janiczek has recorded five albums as director and soloist in partnership with the SCO; four superb recordings of Mozart and Weber: Wind Concertos, which was named Recording of the Month by MusicWeb International. 2014 is the Scottish Chamber Orchestras fortieth anniversary year; the orchestra is internationally recognised as one of the finest chamber orchestras in the world with a multi award-winning catalogue of recordings under Robin Ticciati, Sir Charles Mackerras, Alexander Janiczek and Joseph Swensen.

Here, we have a full house!

(1) the BBC On-line: "Is it even possible for the Scottish Chamber Orchestra to do less than a superb job with Mozart? {This} hits the spot again with crisp, cohesive playing, delivered with a proper sense of fun." Response: Baloney!

(2) The Times: "This is Mozart full of subtlety and finesse." Response: Baloney!

(3) and finally the Last Men of the Gramophone: "The interpretation of the Divertimento is of uniform excellence." Response: Baloney!

These UK-derived accolades could be likened to a Brazilian general who awards himself medals for merely sitting at his desk.

I do not understand the phenomenon wherein recordings are commissioned from puny, cold-bottomed anaemic British ensembles to the exclusion of everyone else. For instance, would it not be... Read more
