The Very Best of Mozart: Part 1
The Very Best of Mozart: Part 1 NOTE: To view in HD, click here: www.youtube.com Mozart is one of the greatest composers to have ever lived. Among his towering achievements are a few pieces that speak to me on a level I have never felt with any other composer, past or present. While this list is not definitive, and certainly no list is, it does touch on the broad spectrum of genres for which Mozart is most famous. I encourage you to find these pieces on your own and begin listening to them earnestly and patiently. I assure you, this music is unlike anything you have ever heard or will ever hear. You will be able to always find something new and startling even after a hundred listens. These pieces are classical in their very nature. Thus is the power of Mozart. The List (1-6) 1. Jupiter Symphony - Levine/Chicago Symphony Orchestra 2. Piano Concerto No. 20 - Bilson/Gardiner/English Baroque Soloists 3. The Abduction at the Seraglio - Gardiner/Monteverdi Choir 4. Symphony 40 in G Minor - Maazel/New York Philharmonic 5. Piano Sonata K.545 - Jean Bernard Pommier 6. Requiem in D Minor - Philippe Herreweghe/Orchestre des Champs Elysees

Having maintained their original membership right from inception, they are living musical witnesses to the hugely productive and influential musical partnerships of the Berlin Philharmonic not only with Karajan, but also with its two most recent Musical Directors: Claudio Abbado and Sir Simon Rattle. Naturally, as members of the Berlin Philharmonic, they have also enjoyed important collaborations with every other major conductor of their times, whether Leonard Bernstein, Carlos Kleiber, Sir John Barbirolli, Günter Wand, Carlo Maria Giulini, Bernard Haitink, Riccardo Muti, James Levine or Daniel Barenboim, to name only a few. The Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet continues to astonish audiences worldwide with their range of expression, their tonal spectrum and their conceptual unity. Indeed many listeners and critics agree that the ensemble has succeeded in virtually redefining the sound of the classic wind ...
