This little Swiss release is not a state-of-the-art recording of Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante in E flat major for violin and viola, K. 364, and that, perhaps, is its charm. There are big-name, big-orchestra performances of this work, and there are bristly historical-instrument readings. But there was a type prevalent a couple generations ago, with a very sensitive European chamber group and soloists who represented the best of the old European tradition, and these recordings made this awe-inspiring work breathe. In 1965 you might have bought this reading by violinist Pierre Amoyal, violist Yuko Shimizu, and the Camerata de Lausanne on the Nonesuch label, perhaps, or from the Musical Heritage Society. The musicians are confident enough in their ensemble work -- impressive indeed for a group without a conductor -- to apply just enough tempo flexibility to bring out the sentimental French sweetness that is at the heart of the sinfonia concertante genre, even the vast K. 364, and the work here receives a uniquely attractive, affecting reading. One bonus is the inclusion of the little-recorded Concertone in C major for two violins, cello, and oboe in C major, K. 190, another Mozart work in a sinfonia concertante-like genre; the musicians get the work's unique balances and slightly experimental quality. Another is the sound, recorded in the famed Salle de Musique in La Chaux de Fonds, Switzerland, in 2012. A highly satisfying outing from the revived Warner Classics label.
