Scottish Chamber Orchestra - Mozart Symphonies 38–41 (4 stars)

(Linn Records)


There are some partnerships that just work. The SCO’s collaboration with conductor Sir Charles Mackerras is one of them. Not that it doesn’t have to be worked at. Having done so over many years, their partnership has matured into a unique bond bearing unrivalled fruit. Their latest release of Mozart’s Symphonies Nos 38, 39, 40 and 41 is exciting and thrilling with a fluidity that carries the listener buoyantly throughout. The special affinity that shines through on this recording will no doubt do likewise at the live performances on 28 & 29 February when the Prague becomes part of Mackerras Conducts Mozart.
