Steven E. Ritter
Fanfare, March 2012

the performances seems perfectly suited to the attention-grabbing scenarios that these works were undoubtedly meant to inspire. Mozart knew how to capture an audience, even when the material was only meant to garner an audience into the festivities…I can’t imagine anyone not liking what he does here with these early yet exciting symphonic efforts.

…the Danish National Chamber Orchestra plays with a lot of verve and authority, and the SACD sound is simply state-of-the-art…If you want to sample this series, this might be a good place to start. © 2012 Fanfare Read complete review on Fanfare

Nalen Anthoni
Gramophone, December 2011

Adam Fischer, infectiously alive to interpretative possibilities, a positive feel for style…and a sharp ear for ensemble balance. Mozart’s first C major symphony, K73, explodes into being, ferocious in momentum and brassy dynamic thrust. If Mozart had wanted to quell a talkative audience, this performance would have done so instantly. In contrast, the slow movement is lyrically shaped, the flutes given their due.

Fischer’s commitment is passionate. So is the orchestra’s response…Why not simply love these works as six among the 16,558 symphonies written in the 18th century?

Audiophile Audition, October 2011

Fischer’s performances have both grace and liveliness and are beautifully played…they make a very fine impression. Dacapo’s studio recording is close up and for me crosses the line between brilliance and aggressiveness. Read complete review
