The internationally renowned conductor and early music specialist Attilio Cremonesi explores Mozart’s score to all its extremes. His handling of the tempos is also exciting. In Adagio passages he lets the flow stagnate, making it clear how Mozart’s characters doubt themselves, hesitate, are unsure of their feelings. In stark contrast to this, he sets the fast-played Allegro parts, which sometimes tell us about the anger of the characters, then again about moments of euphoria. Mozart’s music swings wonderfully there. He savored the breaks, halting the action, as it were: a brief hesitation, reflection.
