ArtistsMoscow Chamber Orchestra
Firma Melodiya revisits the art of Rudolf Barshai, an outstanding domestic musician and founder of the first chamber orchestra in the USSR.
The Moscow Chamber Orchestra, founded by Barshai and a few other enthusiasts in the 'thaw period', became a new page in the history of Soviet musical and performing practice. Thousands of concert goers recognized the music of baroque and classicism in a totally new sound, and Barshaiís orchestraís records sold millions of copies, competing with the best known pop hits.
Their concerts also included contemporary music, but Mozart was the most frequently performed composer in the concert programmes and on the recordings of the Moscow Chamber Orchestra.
This record showcases one of the early Salzburg period symphonies composed by a sixteen-year-old Mozart and a witty Musical Joke (Village Musiciansí Sextet), the composerís neat parody of scribbling amateurs.
These recordings of Mozartís works were made in 1972 and 1973.
