Format: Audio CD
In this year of the 250th anniversary of Mozart's birth CDs of his music are in full spate like a Rocky Mountain freshet in June. I for one don't mind a bit. I've already reviewed two issues that featured the complete Mozart piano sonatas, and several DVDs of most of his most popular piano concertos, and a box set of CDs and another of DVDs of his most popular operas. And I say, 'Bring 'em on.' Here we have the complete set of Mozart violin concertos featuring one of the rising stars of the violin world, the young Canadian James Ehnes. By coincidence his thirtieth birthday was the same day as Wolfi's 250th, so this set seems inevitable, doesn't it? Furthermore, young Mr Ehnes wrote his own booklet notes and, more important, his own cadenzas for the concerti and other violin/orchestra pieces also included. And those cadenzas are simply marvelous -- perfectly of the classic period and showing Ehnes's virtuosic abilities without being too Romantic in thrust. I enjoyed every single one of them. As I did each performance of the concerti.

Ehnes put together an ad hoc orchestra of mainly Canadian orchestral musicians to accompany him, calling it the Mozart Anniversary Orchestra, conducting them from up front. These are major musicians primarily on the Canadian scene including among others, the concertmaster of the Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal (Jonathan Crow), the concertmaster of the Oregon Symphony (Amy Schwartz Moretti), and the concertmaster of the Adelaide Symphony (Terrence Tam). Each musician, twenty-seven of them, has a bio printed in the booklet, a nice touch.

On CD1 are the first two concerti, K.207 and K.211, plus three free-standing movements for violin and orchestra, the luscious Adagio in E, K. 261 (one of my favorite Mozart 'arias'), the Rondo in B flat, K.

James Ehnes has produced a beautiful CD of Mozart violin concertos. His playing is so clear, you can hear every note. We saw him in concert and were so impressed, we decided to start collecting his CDs. He is an impressive talent.
