Notes & Reviews:

Many people may not know that both Mozart and Beethoven also wrote fantastic ballet music. Here is a CD of the complete ballet music from Mozart's opera "Idomeneo" and Beethoven's full-length ballet "The Creatures of Prometheus." Only a handful of recordings exist of these unusual and demanding works. This is Västerås Sinfonietta's debut on dB Productions, led by British conductor Roy Goodman, recognized internationally today for his some 120 CD recordings.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
The fortepiano, with its whisper-thin treble, will strike many listeners as too anemic for the piece; indeed, sometimes something's missing, and even though the historicallyinformed performance practice often appeals to me, a few moments (notably Variation 18) don't seem effective. On the other hand, the enigmatic expression of the final variation - a wistful minuet - works very well on the fortepiano. The high-registered passages make infinitely more sense with the gossamer textures Staier can achieve with the fortepiano than they do on a modern instrument. Altogether, this is a remarkable and unforgettable performance that many connoisseurs of the Diabellis will not want to be without.
