A delightful Divertimenti from Mozart

John Brunning describes Müllejans' rendition of Mozart's Divertimenti and Serenata notturna as 'great travelling music'

Composer: Mozart
Repertoire:Divertimenti, Serenata notturna
Artists: Freiburger Barockorchester/Müllejans
Rating:
3/5
Genre: Orchestral
Label: HMC 901809

In fact, if portable players had existed in Mozart’s day, he might have subtitled it ‘A Little Driving Music’. The subtle instrumental colours produced by the Freiburger Barockorchester are beautifully captured in these works, which are a staple part of any string ensemble’s repertoire. My only gripe is that I would have liked to have read a little about the orchestra’s background in the sleeve notes. Nevertheless, a charming CD.
