A delightful pairing... Mozart on a sunny day
Alexander Janiczek directs the SCO in the second volume of Mozart Serenades which includes the Serenade in D, Serenade K. 203 and Divertimento K. 251.
The Scottish Chamber Orchestra continues their hugely successful series of Mozart recordings, following on from Mozart Symphonies 38-41. Austrian-born violinist Alexander Janiczek directs the SCO in a fine performance of the rarely recorded ‘Colloredo' Serenade and Divertimento K. 251. The 'Colloredo' Serenade, written for Hieronymous, Count von Colloredo, who was elected Prince-Archbishop of Salzburg in 1772, shows the eighteen-year-old Mozart writing in an easy, informal style, but showing great originality.
The Divertimento K. 251, in the same key as the Serenade and similarly designed for summer entertainment, is full of spirited, catchy themes and dance music. It contains some delightful surprises! The SCO uses a stylish combination of modern instruments (except for natural trumpets), and period influences such as selective vibrato that results in clear textures and an exciting, entertaining performance in the natural acoustic of Greyfriars Kirk, Edinburgh.
Total running time: 63 minutes.
