Mozart Live 1978 (2CD)

A first-time CD release for a gala concert given by the pre-eminent Mozart interpreters of the late analogue era.

On 27th January, 1978 fell the 222nd birthday of Mozart and the auspicious occasion was marked in Strasbourg, at the Palais de la Musicque et des Congrès, by an ingeniously planned program which spanned a decade of the composer’s full maturity. Everyone associated with the concert could boast impeccable Mozartian credentials.

Portions of the event have been released on CD before but never the entire concert which makes this newly remastered reissue on Eloquence an essential acquisition for all Mozart lovers, enhanced by original sleeve notes and texts and translations of the arias.
