Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Many vinyl records are invaluable documents of their time. No series shows this as clearly as the Cologne recordings in the enthusiastically received Electrola Collection, now newly-named the Cologne Collection. In 1789, Mozart arranged and abridged Handel's Messiah on behalf of a group of Viennese noblemen. lt was not until the 20th century that the full value of Mozart's arrangement was reappraised. Mozart's interpretation gives Handel's Messiah a compelling new sound.

Notes & Reviews:
