... an excellent Mozartian, recorded Mozart Symphonies #s 35-41 (see my review), Eine Kleine Nachtmusik (EKN). concerti for oboe, clarinet, and bassoon, and the Sinfonis Concertante for violin and viola (unfortunately omitting the great Sinfonia Concertante for Winds, k297b. The major work on this cd is the Sin Con k 364. It compares quite favorably to George Szell's earlier version with Rafael Druian and Abraham Skernick. Again with the Cleveland remake, the
soloists benefit from shared experience with great permanent conductors. It is true that Daniel Majeske is not David Oistrakh or Arthur Grumiaux, but other great sin cons did not
boast superstar soloists. The best viola soloist that I have heard in a sin con is Georg Schmid with Karl Ristenpart and the Saar CO-as great a violist as Oistrakh a violinist. Majeske
and Robert Vernon are especially powerful in the second movement, an extended love song I think.
Dohnanyi is a bit more romantic than Szell without neglecting precision. The EK Nachtmusik
here is a great orchestral version per se-laden with grace and elegance-, even though I prefer
the one-on-a-part versions of the ASMF Chamber Ensemble/Philips and the Amadeus Quartet/DG.
The Flute and Harp concerto here is also exemplary, particularly the flutist Joshua Smith (lovely tone and expressivity), whose interaction with the harpist Lisa Wellbaum is quite
impressive.

I recently had the pleasure of listening to this CD, and greatly enjoyed it.

Christoph Dohnanyi spent 18 years at the helm of the Cleveland Orchestra, delivering many fine performances. On this CD, we get the Sinfonia Concertante, the Eine Kleine Nachtmusik and the Harp Concerto. Having previously heard the George Szell renditions of the n=Nachtmusik and Concertante, I had high expectations for Dohnanyi. Dohnanyi's style takes the razor sharp precision of George Szell, and infuses it with the Warmth of a Bruno Walter.

The Concertante in particular, was the highlight of this disc for me, with Vernon and Majeske as the soloists. Though I had not previously been familiar with these soloists, I found the attention to detail and technical ability of these soloists to be just as good as the George Szell version with Rafael Druian and Abraham Skernick. Dohnanyi's infusion of warmth into the equation also greatly helped this recording.

With the Eine Kleine Nachtmusik however, I did have some initial hesitation to embrace this rendition. Either the lack of perfect orchestral balance or the infusion of warmth caused the Dohnanyi performance to sound slightly less than ideal when compared to the George Szell recording, which I consider to be the ideal performance of this work. The Cleveland Orchestra has agreat technical ability and I am normally a big fan of Cleveland Orchestra recordings, but I had trouble fully embracing this rendition of the Nachtmusik. Having also enjoyed the Bruno Walter version of the Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, I was a little surprised that I couldn't fully embrace the Dohnanyi version. Dohnanyi is essentially a blend of Szell and Walter, but that just didn't work for me on the Nachtmusik. I would give the Nachtmuik 4.5/5.

This is a great CD...The Mozart with Mr. Vernon & Majeski is one of a kind, and the world class Cleveland Orchestra is stunning under the direction of Dohnannyi. In particular the Mozart "concertante" never sounded better.

This is without a doubt the best recording of Eine Kleine Nachtmusik I've heard. Precise, on key, technically right and still full of all the passion and feeling Mozart intended. So often you'll find one lacking, most often it's the heart I think because people get so focused on technique. Without a doubt one of the best recordings of all these pieces that I've found, and I often seek out different performances to hear their interpretations. Sir Neville Marriner and The Academy of St. Martin in the Field is the only other ones to match this. I reccomend this album highly for it's quality, and stupendous performance of music that is breathtaking and pure genius.
