Mozart's symphonies are amongst the most often recorded works of art. I have been a long time admirer of the Bruno Walter recordings of the last 6 symphonies of Mozart. Especially the mono recordings he made with the NYP. Although these recordings are still a pleasure to listen too, I missed the nuances that somehow got lost due to the old recording technique. That is why I always kept the Josef Krips recordings next to them and although they are also very comfortable to listen to, I missed the inspiration and depth that can be heard in the Walter recordings. Maybe it is because Krips was recording with the KCO which to my ears approaches every work likes it is blessed by Calvijn. After having tried Klemperer, Jochum with the Bamberger and Sawallisch with the Czech philharmonic, I decided for long that I just should stick to Carlos Kleiber's DVD recordings of the Linzer and no 33 symphonies. I bought the Suitner recordings with the Staatskapelle because I find the playing of the Staaskapelle almost always very exquisite and breathtaking. After listening to these CDs I decided that it was indeed time to get rid of Krips and immerse in these inspiring recordings. These recordings challenge my intellect and please my musical ear much more than all the different 'correct' recordings with historical instruments together. Including the ones by Brugge or Harnoncourt. So I can recommend these recordings to anyone who is looking for unsurpassed orchestral ensemble playing, originality and timeless beauty of phrasing in the Mozart's symphonies. If you agree with me after hearing these CDs, you should also try the Beethoven symphonies with the Staatskapelle conducted by Herbert Blomstedt.
