  • CD - Mozart: 45 Symphonies (DACAPO) Danish Chamber Orchestra
Mozart, Wolfgang A.: Sinfonien

Hinaus aus dem Museum mit den Mozart-Sinfonien! Viel zu lange schon war die sogenannte "originale Aufführungspraxis" ein Vorwand für interpretatorischen Ideenmangel.

  • CD - Mozart: Symphonies Vol. 10, No.35-38 (DACAPO) Danish National Chamber Orchestra
Mozart Symphonies Vol. 10 from Fischer, Still HIP

Adam Fischer and his Danish National Chamber Orchestra use modern instruments, but they play in period style. This means little to no vibrato, dry articulation, extremes of loud and soft, generally swift tempos, and a generous observance of repeats.

  • CD - Mozart: Symphonies Vol. 4, No.12-14 (DACAPO) Danish National Chamber Orchestra
Mozart: Symphonies Volume 4

Fischer’s Danish players perform with energy, a certain refreshing rawness and, when required, a nicely tapering phrase. The recording is quite close and detailed but not oppressive.

  • CD - Mozart: Opera "Mitridate, re di Ponto" (DACAPO) Danish National Chamber Orchestra
Mozart: Mitridate, re di Ponto

The catalog of Mozart opera recordings isn't exactly crowded with versions of his early opera seria Mitridate, re di Ponto. In fact, this new release from conductor Adam Fischer, published on the Dacapo Records label, is only the third studio issue, following previous recordings from Leopold Hager (1977) and Christophe Rousset (1998).
