Listen to audio excerpts and browse the Sir Colin Davis discography on Decca Classics. The sound, mostly early digital, is the icing on the cake. The whole set sounds wonderful even on bad speakers. Davis chooses sensibly deliberate tempos throughout, deciding to rely on his own abilities in Classical repertoire and leaning on his great ensemble. An exceptional box of music, allowing you to hear Mozart's late symphonies in the absolute best light possible. Get it while you still can!
Album · 2008 · 15 Songs. Among Charles Mackerras’ many specialties, Mozart occupied a unique place. The conductor’s long experience of the operas gave his performances of the symphonies a drama and theatricality that makes them so appealing. His blending of period manners with modern instruments (though with period brass) gives these four works a freshness and modernity of approach, while also looking back to a scale that the composer would surely have recognised and appreciated. Beautifully recorded, this a classy collection of Mozart’s greatest symphonies. Mozart: Symphonies Nos. 38-41 Scottish Chamber Orchestra.
Sir Colin Davis's LPs of Mozart Symphonies were landmarks of the analog era. Encountering his digital recordings of these works for the first time here, I can only say that he has surpassed himself. For one thing, the Staatskapelle Dresden is a better orchestra than he ever has recorded Mozart Symphonies with. Davis himself recorded four of the symphonies with a chamber orchestra in the early '60's, but here that is all in the past. Davis also takes a number of repeats that he omitted before, altogether to the better I think. Davis is a bit stronger in the 30's and in 41, but so was Mozart. His signature orchestra plays in the manner so many of Sir Colin's orchestras do. They sound modern, but still capture the tempi, the cadence and feel period orchestras often generate. There is plenty of joy in store, and very little risk here.
