Overflowing with Mozart’s characteristic melodic invention and deliciously abundant wit, these two celebratory Divertimenti are both associated with his time in Salzburg. K 251 was probably written for the name-day of Mozart’s sister Nannerl, and K 334 for the university graduation of a prosperous family friend.


   




Review By Christophe Huss,Le Devoir,February 2013

Helmut Müller-Brühl n’est pas connu ici. Musicien, philosophe et théologien, il oeuvrait à Cologne depuis 1964. Il s’intéressa très tôt (1976-1986) aux instruments anciens et aux recherches dans le domaine de la musique baroque. Il fut pourtant, en 1987, le pionnier d’un courant (représenté ici par Bernard Labadie) qui considère que l’alliance entre la connaissance de la rhétorique baroque et le confort sonore des instruments modernes apporte une proposition artistique intéressante. Il est mort d’une longue maladie en janvier 2012, à l’âge de 78 ans. Même s’il s’était retiré en 2009, il est entré en studio en

Review By Mary Kunz Goldman,The Buffalo News,January 2013

This is music you can listen to anywhere, whether you are driving in your car, cleaning your house, studying for an exam or walking in the park. Mozart wrote it as entertainment. It was not designed to command your full attention. But that’s the glory of it: The music doesn’t change the world, but you marvel all the same. Its casual perfection amazes you…and there are bittersweet interludes that rival Mozart’s more “serious” works. The music definitely gives back more than it demands. The Cologne Chamber Orchestra, led by Mueller-Bruehl, resists the temptation to overengineer the music. They play it straight, with conservative tempos and a luminous string sound. © 2013 The Buffalo News
