Mozart Youth Symphonies

Mozart Youth Symphonies

Aparte 215

With his birthday just around the corner, Mozart takes the spotlight in our next two Albums of the Week. First, a look at his pre-teen years in a recording released this month. 

Gottfried von der Goltz leads the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra in Mozart’s five youth symphonies and a set of dances. These are short, lively works that are easy to listen to, and they give a glimpse of the greatness that was to come.
