Sir Thomas Beecham rarely recorded with big name soloists believing that the players of his own Royal Philharmonic were just as good. So in concert and recording he used them . With Jack Brymer on the clarinet and Gwydion Brooke on the bassoon we can hear how right Beecham was. Under Beecham's hands both concertos are a pure delight balancing Mozartian elegance and clarity of detail. Symphony No. 41 is of course more weightier stuff but once again clarity and drama are nicely balanced. In the last movement Beecham seems to do a bit of Stokowskian tinkering adding what seems to be a trombone to booster the brass in the final pages of the work. It is not obtussive and is clearly in keeping with the spirit of the work. Very fine remastered sound(stereo) by EMI .

A lovely way to be introduced to Beecham's Mozart Dec 13 2006
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on
Format: Audio CD
It's quite unfair for the Amazon reviewer to describe these late Mozart recordings from Beecham as "stately, deliberate, stolid." True, he came from an earlier generation of Mozarteans, and his tempos arern't brisk, but the correct adjectives are "easy, natural, and good-humored." Beecham's Mozart always creates a smile. The best example is his delightful Abduction form the Seraglio (EMI). This Sym. 41 plus two wind concertos isn't that ebbulient, but it's full of energy and life.

EMI has done a fine job remastering the late-50s sonics. They are still a trifle thin on top and tubby on the bottom (much like listeners of my age). Have no fear that these performances are dull or that Reginald Kell, the solist in the clarinet concerto, plays stiffly, as the Amazon reviewer claims. He doesn't attack his phrasing with extroverted energy (the current style) but adheres to Beecham's smooth, laid-back approach. In the bassoon concerto Gwydion Brooke's ability to make his instrument sing and chuckle by turns is a pure delight.
