Mozart: The Complete Symphonies by Berliner Philharmonker/KerlBohm


The complete diversity of Mozart’s Symphonic style has appeared when Sir Simon Rattle and Berlin Philharmoniker presented the last three of their works at the season-opening concert in 2013.

This is a perfect example of the orchestra’s Mozart style which increased exploration of historical performance practice. The performances blend orchestral warmth, transparency, and the inspiration of the conductor. One critic wrote that he is not just a musician but a sentient artist.

In the last three symphonies, Mozart makes it almost a resume of his worlds of expression, their elegance, and radiance of their drama. The key of E-flat major in Mozart of symphony number 39 generally as it does here, stands for warmth and sonority, and also a kind of ceremonial stateliness. In symphony number 40, drama and rococo elegance are mixed specifically in the famous first movement. While symphony number 41, known as Jupiter, exudes radiance, solemnity in a radiant C major, culminating in the Finale in admirably innovative blend of sonata form and fugue.

This is one of the supreme musical geniuses & most loved composers of all time, Mozart was written prolifically and excelled in every genre to which he turned his hand. The symphonies are among his greatest achievements, tender lyricism, and dazzling invention. Karl Bohm is one of the first conductors to set down on record his complete Mozart symphony cycle.

Berlin Philharmonic is a German Orchestra based in Berlin, which consistently ranked in the top handful of orchestras in the world. The history of the orchestra has always been tied to its chief conductors, many of them have been controversial and authoritative, such as Herbert von Karajan and Wilhelm Furtwangler.

The Berlin Philharmonic was founded in 1882 in Berlin by 54 musicians under the name of “Fraher Bilsesche Kapelle” (former bilse’s band). The orchestra was reorganized and renamed under the financial management of Hermann Wolff in 1882. Arthur Nikisch a Hungarian conductor, became chief conductor in 1895 and was succeeded by a German conductor Wilhelm Furtwangler in 1923. Instead of having several changes in leadership the orchestra continued to perform throughout World War II.
