On my car radio this morning: the second and third movements of Mozart's
Sinfonia Concertante, in a 1988 EMI recording by Augustin Dumay and Gerard
Caussé, with Emmanuel Krivine (a conductor I've not followed) and the
Sinfonia Varsovia (an ensemble I hadn't heard of). This seemed rather
impressive to me: especially a deep second movement, plus an energetic
third, with fine solo playing. My long-time favorite has been Durian/
Skernick with Szell/Cleveland, but this one seems well worth pursuing.
I've not heard Dumay's later (DG) recording.
I since found it was favorable discussed in rmcr by Simon and others (as
part of an inexpensive multi-CD Dumay Mozart set); and that a single
CD (with two Rondos for violin and orchestra and a duo for violin and
viola) is currently at Berkshire, and a single CD coupled with one or more
Mozart VC's is at Amazon, both inexpensive. I'm frankly a bit confused
by these multiple EMI releases....
