Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)

Concentus Musicus Wien, symphony orchestra
Nikolaus Harnoncourt
, conductor

Nikolaus Harnoncourt has spent more than sixty years exploring Mozart's last three symphonies. The present album represents the results of this engagement. It is also his first recording of these three works with his own "instrument", the Concentus Musicus Wien. This is a recording not of three independent works but of a single work in three sections: an "Instrumental Oratorium".

These symphonies were written during one of the most productive but also one of the most difficult periods in Mozart's life - within a matter of only a few weeks in the summer of 1788. They were entered under three separate dates in his Verzeichnüss aller meiner Werke - the thematic catalog of his works that he maintained from February 1784 until his death: the Symphony in E-flat major is dated June 26, the Symphony in G minor July 25 and the Symphony in C major August 10. 

Recorded October 12-14, 2013 at Musikverein in Vienna, Austria.

Producer: Martin Sauer
