Notes & Reviews:

"Immediately in the opening measures of the Mozart concerto listeners will hear how dynamic this recording is, from the well-defined basses and cellos to the natural-sounding violins and winds... Vesko Eschkenazy, first leader of the Concertgebouw Orchestra itself since 2000, graces these works with his warm, well-rounded tone and holds his own against any of his more famous competitors on disc. He attacks the Mozart with exuberance, the Schubert with poised phrasing (note the way he holds back on the upbeats in the Allegro giusto), and turns the "other" Mendelssohn into a work whose relative neglect should be called into question. Conductor Marco Boni provides bouncy accompaniment, keeps the action moving, and achieves nice balances in the orchestra. An auspicious start for this new label." -Classics Today (10/10)
