Mary Kunz Goldman
The Buffalo News, December 2009

Mozart, Cassations, K. 63, 99, 100, the Salzburg Chamber Orchestra, Harald Nerat, conductor (Naxos). A cassation was a kind of serenade, and Mozart wrote the pieces in Salzburg as a teenager. And you know how people who don’t really know Mozart are always saying you can relax to his music? You actually can relax to this. Still a better idea not to try to accomplish much while you’re listening, though. It might distract you from the loveliness of, say, the Andante of K. 100, the cassation that is the standout among these three. This airy, perfect music is played beautifully and unpretentiously by a chamber orchestra made up of musicians from the famed Mozarteum. Lots of pleasure at a budget price.

Classic CD, January 2009

…lively playing…

Fanfare, January 2009

Harold Nerat’s Salzburg performance show them to be delightful and they’re splendidly played.

Penguin Guide, January 2009

All three early Cassations are given lively, nicely turned performances, very well—if resonantly—recorded. This admirable disc is certainly worth its modest cost and nicely fills a gap in the catalogue.

Gramophone, January 2009

…this is an excellent issue.

CD Review, January 2009

Another little winner from Naxos.
