CATALOGUE NO: CDM 7 64851 2 DDD (1987/90)
Stylish and full-toned, a wonderful mixture of simplicity with sophistication, seriousness and wit, Vlatkovic’s Mozart cycle is a modern classic, to place beside Brain, Tuckwell and Civil. Tate ideally matches his vitality and lyrical repose, and the ECO, doing what they do best, are in outstanding form. Heady stuff, magnificently recorded (Abbey Road). The Strauss – youthful, eloquent, brilliantly virtuosic – is compelling. Ates Orga
