Completing the cycle of Mozart's violin concertos, begun on BIS-SACD-1754, Richard Tognetti and his Australian Chamber Orchestra offer us the first, second and fourth concerto, along with two shorter works for violin and orchestra: the Adagio in E major and the Rondo in C major. All Mozart's works in this genre were written during a few years quite early in his career and demonstrate very clearly Mozart's tremendous development - the fourth concerto in particular displays the confidence of the composer both in handling his material and in teasing the audience with the narrative he creates. Tognetti writes of his and the orchestra's decision to use gut strings, period wind instruments and a lower than usual pitch, in aim to create 'a sound which we know Mozart would have recognised... while simply looking at the notes Mozart wrote down, and start from there, creating a hybrid hopefully carrying an embodiment of truth'. Describing the previous disc in the series, The Observer recommended the disc highly, for its 'beautifully nuanced' and 'transcendent' performances, and 'gloriously exciting, tangy edged, alert and playful sound.' International Record Review described the disc as 'wonderfully refreshing ... a constant delight' with a recorded sound 'beyond praise', going on to state that 'Tognetti finds a musical substance in these works that is matched by very few rival versions.'
