Listening to this recording of the Haffner for the first time, as if I never heard it before. It seems to come to life like no other recording. The sound is glorious and the VPO is wonderful. Made me happy. I don't know what the other reviewer was listening to, or why he is so negative.

This disc of an era gone by is James Levine conducting the VPO while playing Mozart. The recorded performance is neither disciplined large scale orchestra OR the VPO at their best; nor is it period style on Viennese instruments; nor is it the fleet, Mozartean grace revealing Mozart's compositional skills of his last few symphonies. The Linzer (36) borders on a little of Haydn's Military symphony (#100) in tonality, but doesn't make Mozart come to mind - due to the conducting. There is some positively screechy ensemble during the Linzer. James Levine was producing/recording Mozart symphonies for DG at the time; none of it overly well received. The Haffner (35) first on the disc is hardly anything to rave about. What this has to do with Mozart is somewhat puzzling. This disc has been in my collection for a long time. Acquired during the zenith of CD's bounty, it misses the mark for expecting to hear a polished VPO performing Mozart, comes up short on ensemble, is largely "unmusical" and better performances are available elsewhere. Levine, Karajan, Bernstein and Abbado - DG's contract conductors were all producing Mozart recordings at the time, none of it will ever be missed with sprightly period instrument performances in the current catalog much more in tune with Mozart's symphonic requirements.
