Description
In addition to Mozart's two final symphonies, this disc offers a substantial bonus: his rarely heard ballet music from Idomeneo.

"Breakneck tempos in the fast movements and a broad, dramatic gulf between forte and piano yield an explosiveness and exuberance that suit the new 'revolutionary' image. At the same time the bright hues and the tight ensemble that the Musiciens du Louvre achieve, even at the fastest speeds, combined with this compact ensemble's transparent textures and sharp articulation, meet the 'elegance' requirement…. Irresistible."—NYTimes

"They really bring the music to life. The slow movements may be played unfashionably slowly, but they are some of the most beautiful performances of this famous but difficult-to-bring-off music."—Dallas Morning News

"Drawing on their deep experience in performing French opera music, Les Musiciens du Louvre bring tremendous panache to Mozart's colourful, exciting and sophisticated score from the opera in which he came closest to writing a true tragédie-lyrique."—International Record Review
