"I was, however, notably surprised by how specially alert and alive these recordings are. They are crisply and sweetly played with a verve that sounds for all the world like they are live performances. Indeed, I learned that although they are not recordings of concert performances, they were recorded in several bursts of intense work by both orchestras and conductors and one can hear the slight edginess of that sort of situation, not in the sense of edgy tone, but in the sense of the players sitting on the edges of their chairs with all their senses engaged. In a word, these performances are superb, and now that I've made their acquaintance I can assert that many Mozart lovers would pay full price for them. Fortunately they don't have to.
