“A vital, graceful Mozart partnership puts this version amongst the best.”
“This is the most rewarding bonus to Julia Fischer’s spirited recordings of Mozart’s Violin concertos with Yakov kreizberg, especially as the level of the composer’s invention in the Sinfonia concertante is so transcendent…… this new release is hard to beat”
International Record Review
“Julia Fischer has previously recorded the violin concertos for PentaTone (5186 064 and 5186 064); it will come as no surprise to anyone acquainted with those fine discs that the present issue has a legitimate claim to being the best Mozart orchestral recording of the past year.”
La Scena Musicale
“The qualities which made Fischer’s earlier CDs of Mozart’s solo concertos so appetising are here in spades, starting with Kreizberg’s handling of the orchestra. Just listen to the start of the great Sinfonia Concertante, and it’s replete with an energy which doesn’t preclude sensitivity of phrasing or detail of instrumental colour. As the boundaries between “authentic” and “modern” performances become more blurred, this shows that what could have been a stylistic compromise can be transmuted into a triumph.”

Classical CD of the Week
“Fischer’s outstanding recordings of the solo violin concertos obviously had to be completed with the “concertante” works and the C major Rondo (K373), and they don’t disappoint…..If you have the solo concerto discs, you won’t want to miss this.” (Classical CD of the week)
The Sunday Times
“This disc is the icing on the cake of Fischer’s Mozart concerto series on PentaTone and is another distinguished addition to her burgeoning discography. Let’s hope we don’t have to wait too long for the next.”
