Leopold Mozart’s reputation has suffered more than that of most of his professional contemporaries, due in no small measure to the fame of his peerless son and to much spiteful and ill-informed criticism over the past 200 years.
Yet he was an acute and sardonic observer of men and morals, a superlative critic and teacher and, as this recording shows, a fine composer whose works circulated well beyond the confines of Salzburg and made the name Mozart famous before it became immortal.
This disc includes the perennially popular ‘Toy Symphony’.
Leopold Mozart: Symphony in G major, Eisen G8
Leopold Mozart: Cassation in G major, "Toy Symphony"
III. Finale: Presto
Leopold Mozart: Symphony in D major, Eisen D15
I. Allegro molto
Leopold Mozart: Symphony in A major, Eisen A1
Leopold Mozart: Symphony in G major, Eisen G16, "Neue Lambacher"
II. Andante un poco allegretto
“If Mallon and his Toronto band… sometimes sound a tad decorous. Rhythms and phrasing are always alert, while ratchet, snare drum, bird whistle and other assorted interlopers patently enjoy themselves in the Toy Symphony.”
