Positives include good tempi and wind-string balance. More rarely played early overtures might have helped as Mr. O'Hanlon mentions.
I would also like more weight in weightier overtures such as Don Giovanni and Die Zauberflote. No collection, I think, should
be without Erich Kleiber's Figaro overture, Bohm's VPO/Decca Magic Flute overture and Dresden/DG Clemenza di Tito overture; also Jochum/Abduction and Cosi/DG. I
also prefer a few rival collections: Hans Vonk/Dresden/Laser Light (more early overtures); Haitink/The Philips Years/Decca; Klemperer/PO EMI and
the scarce Fritz Lehmann/BPO/DG lp

I've had this disc for about 15 years now, but haven't listened to it in many moons. I've heard several other versions of these Mozart overtures, but none that I enjoy like this particular one with the ASMF conducted by Sir Neville Marriner. I think the sound quality is very good and weighty, just like I like it. Marriner almost always knows what he's doing, because he's the utmost professional. In short, this may be one of the best performances ever of the Mozart Overtures. Buy it used here on Amazon for just $1.60 in like new condition. That's the ultimate bargain of bargains.

I have owned this CD for approximately 20 years and it consistently gives me pleasure on each of its many, many rehearings. Marriner finds just the right tempos and emphases for the Academy (which I have also heard in person in London), and makes each Overture quite distinct and memorable. Most highly reccommended!
