Mozart:

Symphony No. 38 in D major, K504 'Prague'

arranged for flute, violin, cello and piano by Hummel

Symphony No. 39 in E flat major, K543

arranged for flute, violin, cello and piano by Hummel

Symphony No. 40 in G minor, K550

arranged for flute, violin, cello and piano by Hummel


Uwe Grodd (flute), Friedemann Eichhorn (violin), Martin Rummel (cello) & Roland Krüger (piano)

Hummel stands as the last in the great Viennese line which embraced Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven. He lived and studied with Mozart in his youth and, despite a career which saw him triumph as a conductor, composer and virtuoso pianist, Hummel never lost his reverence for his celebrated teacher. Intensified through changes in dynamics and the addition of extra accents, these stunningly effective arrangements preserve the integrity of Mozart’s masterpieces while demonstrating a heartfelt appreciation and understanding of the greatest symphonies of his “immortal master”.

Mozart:

Symphony No. 35 in D major, K385 'Haffner'

Symphony No. 38 in D major, K504 'Prague'


Danish National Chamber Orchestra, Adam Fischer

This is the tenth volume in the Dacapo's acclaimed series of the complete symphonies by W.A. Mozart, recorded by the Danish National Chamber Orchestra and their renowned Austro-Hungarian chief conductor Adam Fischer.

It features two of Mozart's mature and most treasured symphonies nicknamed Haffner and Prague, composed in the composer's last decade, the 1780s.

“Fischer takes on a wealth of memorable competition...Just try the [Haffner] finale's limpid opening and the 'shock-tactic' timpani-dominated onslaught that follows. Exciting isn't the word...There's some very sensitive phrasing in the first and second movements [of the Prague]” Gramophone Magazine, November 2013

“Adam Fischer gives as fine a chamber orchestra performance of the Haffner symphony as you’ll hear anywhere...what impresses me about Fischer is that he uses his chamber forces to bring a fresh perspective on these Mozart symphonies. In this he demonstrates a gain in clarity of texture and argument without any loss of impact.” MusicWeb International, 7th November 2013

“These performances come from the first ever complete set of Mozart symphonies (reviewed above), and they still represent 'big orchestra' Mozart at its most congenial. The contrast between Böhm's sparkling Mozart, both elegant and vigorous, and the much smoother view taken by Karajan on his countless recordings with the same orchestra, works almost entirely in Böhm's favour here. Interpretatively, these are performances very much of their time, with exposition repeats the exception (as in the first movement of No 40) and with minuets taken at what now seem like lumbering speeds. However, the slow movements certainly flow easily enough, and finales bounce along infectiously.
Consistently they convey the happy ease of Böhm in Mozart, even if the recording is beefy by today's standards, not as transparent as one now expects in this repertory, whether on modern or period instruments.
There's some inconsistency between the different recordings, all made in the Jesus-Christus Kirche in Berlin. The best sound comes from the sessions in 1966 for the Linz and No 39 – satisfyingly full without any perceptible edginess on violins – and the least good from 1959 for the Prague, where high violins sound rather fizzy.
Yet the very precision of the CD transfers encourages one to highlight such points. In practice most collectors will find the sound more than acceptable enough in all six symphonies to convey the warmth of Böhm in Mozart without distraction.”
