Le Concert des Nations, Jordi Savall

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - The Symphonic Testament: Following a long maturation process, Jordi Savall presents his interpretation of Mozart’s Last Three Symphonies.

He has chosen - on this double album - to repeat the Symphony No. 40 twice, in order to underline the continuity existing from one work to the other (this is an important dimension of this milestone of the orchestral music in the XVIIIth Century).

The Concert des Nations is at its best and put flesh and bone on this vision, in which fluidity and theatricalness dominate.

Reviews:

Sunday Times

"These are fine, big-boned accounts, Savall’s musicians relishing Mozart’s rigorous counterpoint, notably in the final fugue of No 41"
