Notes & Reviews:

One of the most popular works in all classical music, Mozarts Eine kleine Nachtmusik is shrouded in mystery since we have no idea as to why or for whom it was composed. Written for strings alone, it is a beautifully proportioned work, classical in form but with romantic overtones, especially in the brooding minor key middle section of the Romance. Mozarts familiar Serenata notturna is in reality a concerto grosso for a group of solo strings and full string orchestra with a delightful part for drums. These performances by the Swedish Chamber Orchestra was recorded at Orebro Concert Hall in June 2004.

Classical Candor
The sound the Naxos engineers provide is as good as anything you'll find at the price. It spreads out nicely across the front speakers, provides decent definition everywhere but in the aforementioned timpani and horns, and exhibits a remarkably realistic resonant glow, a hint of reverberation that gives the performances a most realistic feel. In all, this album is a hands-down easy recommendation.
