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?
