These marvellous performances by the English Chamber Orchestra conducted by Jeffrey Tate and filmed in the charming surroundings of the Viennese Schloss Schonnbrunn launch a series of Mozart symphonies, released on Arthaus Musik's new mid-price label.

The nickname Jupiter Symphony, a title not given by Mozart himself, seems to have been inspired by a sense of Olympic grandeur in this work and is a landmark in the sinfonic tradition of the 19th century. The Linzer Symphony like the Jupiter is in C major and was composed within five days. Typical for Mozart is the brilliant use of contrasting elements, the change of moods and the marvellous moments of surprise.

The English Chamber Orchestra is one of the most highly regarded small orchestral ensembles in the world. It boasts one of the highest-selling classical albums of all time, Vivaldi's Four Seasons with Nigel Kennedy as well as high-profile performances such as that at the wedding of its patron, HRH The Prince of Wales. Under Jeffrey Tate it has recorded the complete Mozart symphonies as well as the complete Mozart keyboard concertos:

"There are absolutely no reservations about Jeffrey Tate's strongly characterised readings of four key late Mozart symphonies. The ECO emphasise elegance in the Linz Symphony ¡K and the first movement of Symphony No 40 combines an expressive G minor atmosphere with incisiveness and boldness of attack. Indeed, the playing is absolutely top class, throughout, as fresh as it is polished" Gramophone on the original CD issue
