Leopold Mozart: Symphonies (premiere recordings)
A Treatise on the Fundamental Principles of Violin Playing (Early Music Series)
A Treatise on the Fundamental Principles of Violin
Known principally as the father of Wolfgang Amadeus, Leopold Mozart was a distinguished musician in his own right. An excellent violinist and composer, his greatest contribution to music was his Treatise on Fundamental Principles of Violin Playing. Published at Ausburg in 1756 it was the major work of its time on the violin and it contains much that is of considerable interest and value to musicians today: notes on performance, practice, a glossary of technical terms and specific chapters on the playing of written and improvised embellishments, the trill, and special rhythmic figures. Copious exercises illustrate each point made in the text. A Preface--revised for this edition--offers an illuminating biographical study of Leopold both as a man and as a musician.

Leopold Mozart: Four Symphonies
Leopold Mozart: Four
Leopold Mozart (1719-1787) was a fine musician and composer, widely admired and only forgotten because of his even more brilliant son, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. He wrote approximately 70 symphonies of his own, some of which have been lost, and they apparently made a great impression on his son. In Wolfgang’s earliest symphonies, written in his childhood, strong influences of his father are recognizable. The Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra Vilnius was founded 30 years ago. Their collaboration with conductor Georg Mais began in 1994 with numerous concerts in Lithuania and central Europe.

Notebook for Nannerl:
(Schott). In 1759 Leopold Mozart compiled a notebook of exercises for his daughter Nannerl. The notebook was also used by young Wolfgang, who composed his own pieces into the empty pages. This edition contains all of Leopold's and Wolfgang's compositions from the collection. "Since this is music chosen by a professional musician father for his daughter's successful career, each piece introduces a new and different technique with no time wasted in between. In terms of difficulty, the music is consistently progressive along with key signature, from simple to advanced...The editor shows great understanding of characteristics of the period through dynamics, ornamentation and phrasings. Most of all, pieces are not too long for younger students, so they can learn and enjoy performing quickly. The catching melody could especially motivate students. Also, well-organized page and spacing between lines are another plus for students."-- American Music Teacher

Leopold Mozart has only survived throughout history in fragments. The large supply of secular instrumental music on which he prided himself in 1757, has been irrevocably lost. Leopold's son, Wolfgang dismantled and auctioned off his things as to continue caring for his own family at the time. In the recording presented here, a listener can gain an overall impression of the composer's oeuvre. Reinhard Goebel leads the Bayerische Kammerphilharmonie in discovering these forgotten masterpieces.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Cosi Fan Tutte (Elisabeth Schwarzkopf,
On EMI Classics 69635; 3 CD's; By and large, this is the most satisfying of all of Karajan's Mozart opera recordings. The Philharmonia Orchestra plays superbly for Karajan. EMI's transfer gives the vivacious wind playing an extra, welcome edge. Karajan's fleet tempi and knowing accentuations propel the music forward delightfully. Elisabeth Schwarzkopf and Nan Merriman are seductive and sizzling, with Lisa Otto not far behind. Leopold Simoneau's elegant legato and word-painting skills come to the fore in "Un'aura amorosa" (he may be the best Ferrando ever recorded), and Sesto Bruscantini's Alfonso remains one of the best-sung on record. As well, Rolando Panerai is excellent. Additionally, "The Penguin Guide to Opera on Compact Disc" says, "Karajan has rarely made an opera recording more felicitious than his 1954 set of 'Cosi Fan Tutte.' Commanding as Schwarzkopf is as Fiordiligi in [her later recording], the extra ease and freshness of her singing in the earlier version makes it even more compelling. Nan Merriman is a distinctive and characterful Dorabella, and the role of Ferrando has never been more mellifluously sung on record than by Leopold Simoneau, ravishing in 'Un aura amorosa.' The young Rolando Panerai is an ideal Guglielmo, and Lisa Otto a pert Despina, while Sesto Brus...

Mozart: Piano Quartets
Neither Beethoven in his maturity nor Haydn wrote for the piano quartet - piano with string trio - yet this oddly neglected instrumental combination inspired Mozart to pen these mature works that were to be the first masterpieces of the genre. Mozart delights in having richer textures than in the more common piano trio and the wider variety of sonorities than in the string quartet. Indeed, so much did he enjoy himself in the composition that he lost the commission to write the last two of the three works here after the publisher Hoffmeister found the first too intricate and difficult for the amateur market! But hisenthusiasm pushed him to write them anyway and what has come down to us makes a wonderful compendium of Mozart's genius, his resourceful technical felicity as well as that deft kaleidoscope of emotional narrative. Following the Leopold String Trio's acclaimed reading of the great string trio divertimento K563, this release will be a revelation for many and for all of us a source of deep gratification. Paul Lewis, a pupil of Alfred Brendel and here making his Hyperion debut, is by training and temperament steeped in the Viennese classics, bringing to these special works both the authority and youthfulness they merit.

Mozart: Letters (Everyman's Library Pocket
Mozart's remarkable life was well and richly documented in letters: his own and those concerning him written by others. This volume brings together a fascinating selection, giving us a detailed portrait of the composer's life and times. Here are letters to and from Mozart's domineering father, Leopold, the earliest of which, addressed to a friend, describes the six-year-old Mozart's accomplishments. There is also a letter sent to the Royal Society in London from one of its members describing an astonishing encounter with the eight-year-old prodigy. Here are letters from the adolescent Mozart to his mother and sister; adoring, protective missives to his wife; and, from his later years, letter after letter to friends, family, former patrons, and fellow musicians begging for financial help.Mozart's correspondence is full of details that illuminate the quotidien aspects of his days, reveal the great joys and burdens of his musical genius, and provide us with a lively account of the musical politics in the courts and opera houses of eighteenth-century Europe. Finally, in a letter written by Mozart's sister-in-law, this splendid epistolary portrait of the great composer is completed with a deeply moving account of his last hours.
