We gave it a C

The need for a cycle of Mozart’s 41 symphonies performed on modern instruments by an East European orchestra of no particular distinction would seem to be dubious, and indeed Mackerras’ performances offer no compelling reason for this project. The original-instruments crowd has pretty well mopped up the field. What we have here are reasonable readings, but not much more. Christopher Hogwood conducting the Academy of Ancient Music remains the best Mozart symphony choice. C
