MOZART: Symphonies Nos. 40 and 41
BBC Radio 3, March 1991
"Bright, alert playing from the Capella Istropolitana under Barry Wordsworth, a conductor who I find has a real gift for conveying on record the tensions of live performance. ... With exceptionally clear articulation and sprung rhythms, combined with sharp contrasts of dynamic, the result's both strong and elegant. ... with textures clean as in a period performance. ... The sound sharply focussed. I love the way the wind instruments, the horns in particular, stand out in bold contrast. ... The digital recording has exceptional presence and immediacy. ... It's my clear first choice among the mid-price and budget versions, well worth anyone's money."
