Overview

Originally released as separate hybrid SACDs between 2006 and 2013, Adam Fischer's recordings of the 45 symphonies of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart are reissued as standard CDs in this 12-disc box set from Dacapo. While audiophiles will want to collect the individual volumes for their exceptional clarity and depth, less particular listeners may be contented with the perfectly fine stereo reproduction of these discs. The main issue for all, however, is the style of Fischer's performances, in which he combines period performance practices and the modern instrumentation of the Danish National Chamber Orchestra, a compromise that is surprisingly effective and practical. Fischer's tempos are usually quick and his emphasis on energetic, even brusque, playing gives the symphonies a sharp edge, so there is little here that could be considered gemütlich. Rather, Fischer's approach has a certain dry, cerebral quality that encourages intellectual appreciation, and urges active exploration of the symphonies instead of listening for relaxation.
