…This set is highly recommended. The high quality sound is cool, vivid and well balanced. I just love the consistent purity and nobility of the playing which is marvellously assured and refined. There is never any Romantic wallowing and the performances are characterful but never overacted.
Dass Mozart ein Wunderkind war, ist allgemein bekannt, dennoch versetzen einen diese frühen Sinfonien immer wieder in Erstaunen: "An Einfallsreichtum und Originalität übertrifft Mozart einfach alles", so Nikolaus Harnoncourt, der dem Komponisten von Anfang an mit großem Ernst und nie verspielt oder betulich begegnet. Diese auf mehreren CDs erschienenen und von der Presse hochgelobten frühen Sinfonien gibt es jetzt erstmals in einer 7 CD-Edition zum Sonderpreis. "Die Frische und Brillanz, mit der die schnellen Sätze musiziert werden, ist ebenso anregend wie die charmante Delikatesse, die aus den Mittelsätzen spricht", so die Fachzeitschrift Stereoplay.

Josef Myslivecek dropped out of university at the age of sixteen, and along with his twin brother became an apprentice to the family millers’ business. In 1758 both became journeymen, and in 1761, master millers. It was soon after this that Myslivecek decided to devote himself to music. He studied organ and composition and in 1763 left Prague for Venice where he studied operatic composition. He immediately became known as ‘Il Boemo’ (The Bohemian) because his name was impossible for the Italians to pronounce. Myslivecek’s first opera was staged in 1766 and a further opera was produced a year later for the birthday of the King of Naples, but despite this early success and the enormity of his output (which included concertos, a quantity of chamber music, some forty-five symphonies, oratorios and nearly thirty operas), Myslivecek died in abject poverty, in Rome, at the age of fifty-four.
