Notes & Reviews:

Following the success of his acclaimed Rameau album 'Une Symphonie Imaginaire', Marc Minkowski and the Musiciens du Louvre tackle two landmarks of symphonic repertoire: Mozart's Symphonies 40 and 41. In this, his debut Mozart recording, Minkowski upholds his reputation as one of the most progressive and innovative Mozart conductors of our time. Mozart's two last symphonies are coupled with the final ballet scene from 'Idomeneo'.

Süddeutsche Zeitung
Mozart's late G minor has seldom been deciphered with such revolutionary zeal, such wild delight in motion, such passion in bringing out bold strokes of melody and harmony, or such churning drama. French conductor Marc Minkowski . . . showed what underlying daemonic forces went into this work of Mozart's . . .

Gramophone Magazine
Marc Minkowski's coupling of the last two Mozart Symphonies is truly individual, arrestingly weighty and very much forward-looking. ... it is in the Jupiter that Minkowski triumphs. ... the first movement is vigorously pressed forward with hard-edged timpani strokes. The slow movement is again very beautiful, yet with uneasy undercurrents. The Minuet again moves on strongly and brightly, preparing the way for the powerful, unstoppable finale.
