Quote from: Valentino on March 17, 2022, 03:39:49 AMSo I've discovered a Mozart piece! Symphony no. 26 in E flat K. 184. It came to me in a BPO/Böhm Symphony 25-41 LP box set. It's some nine minutes of absolute delight, but not very hip. Are there any good modern hip performances of this? Favourites and recommendations are much appreciated.Also don't hesitate to send me somewhere else to ask.

Found this and was going to tell the world:https://www.prestomusic.com/classical/products/7930260--mozart-symphonies-salzburg-1772-1773But you know British salesmen quoting British reviewers... That said the same conductor an band in the Basson concerto is one of my treasures.
Quote from: Symphonic Addict on February 05, 2022, 04:26:04 PMI'd have loved Mozart's output much more till now had he written more works in minor keys. That is one reason why I love Beethoven so much over other Classics.
Quote from: kyjo on March 18, 2022, 04:26:59 PMAlthough I love many of the works he wrote in major keys, I get your point. Those works he did write in minor keys really are quite special and show a darker side of his musical personality. Lately I've noticed that Mozart had a great affinity for the noble key of E-flat major. Some of my favorite works of his are in this key:Symphony no. 39Piano Concerti nos. 14 and 22Sinfonia Concertante for violin and violaDivertimento for String TrioString Quintet no. 6
Quote from: Symphonic Addict on March 18, 2022, 06:30:55 PMThat is a wonderful selection of works! I couldn't live without any of them. In minor keys, one of the works I don't particularly enjoy is the 20th Concerto in D minor, nevertheless. The Symphony No. 25 in G minor has noteworthy features too in my view, and the String Quintet and Symphony No. 40 in the same key, etc.

Quote from: Jo498 on April 16, 2022, 04:49:10 AMYes, they included them at least for some pieces and they didnt record all of the pieces anyway, I believe.
Quote from: Madiel on April 16, 2022, 04:54:33 AMPossibly Vegh only recorded the ones for certain forces. The numbering and labelling of works as 'Serenade' or 'Divertimento' (or as something else) is a total mess. There are some for orchestra (mostly serenades), some for smaller scale strings and wind (mostly divertimenti), and some just for wind instruments (more divertimenti but also serenades). I had to map it all out (based on the Phillips boxes) before it made any sense.And only some of the works have an associated March. The 'Posthorn' serenade gets 2 of them.
Quote from: Florestan on April 16, 2022, 05:06:28 AMAnd the Posthorn is conspicuously missing from the Vegh set, which otherwise is perfect.
Quote from: DavidW on April 16, 2022, 05:15:01 AMThat is quite an omission! The Posthorn is literally my favorite one (with the Gran Partita being second favorite).
