Notes & Reviews:

This is the latest release in the Contemporaries of Mozart series, one of Chandos' longest running recording projects. That all these symphonies here receive their premiere recording seems strange given Leopold Mozart's status as a well-known composer in his own right. In his day he was highly regarded as a violinist, teacher and composer and held a respected position at the Court in Salzburg, quite apart from being the father of the genius that was Wolfgang Amadeus. His style, which is that of an older generation than his son's, shows clear progress towards sonata form. These charming and stylish symphonies deserve to be more widely heard.

BBC Music Magazine
Matthius Bamert and the London Mozart Players's programme of Leopold Mozart symphonies reveals a deft musical craftsman whose works are graced by genial melodies, animated by an exuberant espirit de coeur and imbued with the intimacy of chamber music. The orchestra gives polished, suavely proficient performances, and the virtuoso horn playing deserves mention, notably in two C major symphonies - C1, with its dramatic opening movement, and D1, with its rousing finale.

Gramophone Magazine
... Bamert and the LMP (stunning horns) generate more excitement, though textures can blur in the bright, resonant church acoustic.
