If the precise, original performing locations for these symphonies remain elusive, the three works - "Jupiter", K551, the E flat major, K543, and that "evergreen study in the key of G minor", K550, known by people all around the world as the "Mozart 40" - all clamour for constant and fresh interpretations; these are precisely what Frans Brüggen delivers. Recordings on Glossa from Brüggen in recent times - always made whilst on tour - have included Mozart's concertos for horn, clarinet and violin, as well as the Requiem. With Stefano Russomanno providing a wellconsidered booklet essay, this new release of the three final Mozart symphonies, available on two CDs and recorded live in Rotterdam, provides eloquent testimony to Frans Brüggen's ability to summon up the expressiveness and spontaneity demanded by Mozart's masterpieces from 1788.
