Notes & Reviews:

Marking the 60th anniversary of their collaboration, legendary conductor Nikolaus Harnoncourt and the Vienna Concentus Musicus, the orchestra he founded 1953, release their first recording of the much-loved Mozart Posthorn Serenade. The album also includes two other Mozart pieces, March in D Major and the Haffner Symphony. This is the first time that these important works of Mozart's "middle" period have been recorded with a period-instrument orchestra. The Posthorn Serenade's many movements vary widely in character, from symphonic to light dance music, which gives Harnoncourt the perfect opportunity to develop "Klangrede," or musical-dialogue, for which he is wellknown. With his subtly differentiated Mozart style, Harnoncourt manages to discover new details even in such familiar pieces of music. His attention to detail extends to using a post horn to play the part from which the serenade takes its name, thus giving the piece a rare charm.

Nikolaus Harnoncourt was born in Berlin in 1929 and grew up in Graz, Austria. He has performed and recorded Haydn, Beethoven, Schumann, Schubert, Mendelssohn and Brahms together with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe. He has received numerous international awards for his work. There are nearly 500 recordings in his discography, which have been awarded all the major international Classical prizes, including a Grammy Award® in 2002 for his recording of the St Matthew Passion.
