Sir Charles Mackerras and his Scottish players are working backwards through Mozart’s symphonies. This second volume follows their acclaimed (and award-winning) set of the last four symphonies with a group of works mainly from the latter part of his Salzburg period along with two he composed following his relocation to Vienna. There are some gaps here: Symphonies Nos 33 and 34, for example, and Nos 28 and 30 which both post-dated No 29.

The recordings also suffered from excessive reverberation and tubbiness, sometimes a problem when recording at the Rudolfinum in Prague. Mackerras renders it with the same crushing power he finds appropriate to 3,5, 7 or 9. In fact, not one of the symphonies comes across as lightweight, rather unexpected in a set that aims to be "historically informed. These performances were recorded live at the 2006 Edinburgh festival. When the timpani are whacked, they really intrude on the acoustic and briefly smudge the otherwise brilliant and colorful detail.
