5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful Performances of Rare Mozart Aug. 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is the first of Tintner Memorial Editions I heard and it turned out to be a sheer delight all 74:14 of it. Indeed, it is hard to imagine how these little pieces by Mozart could be performed any better. Well, mostly by Mozart because apparently not all of "Les petits riens" are actually by Mozart, though apparently no one really knows for sure which ones Mozart did not compose.
The late Georg Tintner is best known for his internationally renowned recordings of the Bruckner Symphonies for Naxos with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, the National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland, and the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra. The present series, the Tintner Memorial Edition, consists so far of recordings of a small regional Canadian orchestra, the Nova Scotia Symphony Orchestra, based in Halifax and the National Youth Orchestra of Canada.
Some reviewers on this site have expressed disappointment with some of the CDs in this series because, they say, the orchestra isn't really very good. I have a couple of others in the series, and so far I disagree, as the Nova Scotia Symphony Orchestra seems to me to be very good. I will say here that they play superbly in these performances, with verve and style. They observe the proper accents, so often smoothed over by modern orchestras. Most of these pieces are German Dances, Marches, and Minuets, and they play them with great spirit.
The recording quality is superb, among the best I have ever heard with a nice stereo spread and layered depth. Very pleasant. If the record notes had not said the orchestra numbers 37 members, I would never have guessed it was not considerably larger.
This one is a real winner!

1.0 out of 5 stars Naxos Dissapointment Again!!! Aug. 25 2004
Format:Audio CD
As with typical Naxos releases one really has to be on their guard. We have here a rare set of Mozart pieces with very little documentation...except we know they have been recordings made live in concert (and probably for CBC Radio.)
ONce again in these releases it compared no where near the results Maestro Tintner acheived in his studio recording of the Bruckner cycle (which was not recorded for Radio)!!!
As to previous reviewers I would be very careful with those who give any recording five stars unless it is Furtwangler or the likes thereof!
Sadly, I find much of the playing here poker faced with little or no humour and little bite! I have had the great pleasure to have worked as an orchestral musician and can say these performances are better served with a really fine recording and a chance to do more musically!!
The genius of Maestro Tintner is not served by these mediocre recordings!

1.0 out of 5 stars Very poor!!! Aug. 25 2004
Format:Audio CD
I cannnot make an allowance for shoddy recordings and edits in a market where there is simply much better to choose from.
As with Naxos we are given sometimes fine performances and other times poorly excecuted ones...
and I am afraid here the sound and blend of the sound does not work for Mozart!
Given this they are rather bland and somewhat laboured readings with little or not distinction.
Instead, we are given Mozart in a Romantic fashion with chamber orchestra forces.
Given this, I am only to conclude that we would be better served with Bohm and the Vienna PHIL or Gardiner with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment for period interpretation!

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor recorded sound and lack of idiomatic feel! Aug. 25 2004
Format:Audio CD
Very four square Mozart out here...rather bland and lacking vitality. Surely the Naxos folks could have found better recordings to release from the Historical archives. These are simply straightforward interpretations with little feeling.

3.0 out of 5 stars Low Energy Dec 30 2012
By J. Lacey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It has been years since I heard "Les Petits Riens" on our local classical music radio station and even harder finding a decent recording of the work. This performance is serviceable but lacks power and energy. It's fine for now but I will continue to look for a better recording down the line.
5.0 out of 5 stars Not Mozart's greatest music, but a great deal from Naxos Sept. 11 2011
By engländerinniedersachsen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It would seem that some people, paTROLLing the internet, like to make nasty comments. However, I challenge anyone who loves 18th century music and is honest to justify any negative comments about this CD, which was not recorded live but was issued on licence from CBC Records, the label of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Georg Tintner did some excellent work with Symphony Nova Scotia during the late 80's and the 90's, leading both to some live recordings (issued as Volumes 1 thru 7 of the Tintner Memorial Edition) as well as several studio-made CDs such as this one. Obviously, the studio recordings are of better quality all-round, with no extraneous noise and with Tintner given the chance to correct any problems. Tintner was a Mozart-lover par excellence, as evidenced by his recordings of symphonies and his predilection for Mozart's operas, but with a little-known orchestra his best chances were obviously with Mozart rarities such as the ones presented here, a selection of occasional dances and marches and most of "Les petits riens", a work that was put together using music by Mozart and some other composers. (Tintner has recorded not only everything which was definitely by Mozart, but also some doubtful pieces, just to be sure.) The music (Mozart is said to have noted that he was paid "too much for what I did, but too little for what I could have done") is generally fairly simple, pure dance or march music with jaunty melodies on violins, winds and brass, although I had the feeling that nobody else could have written most of these pieces, they sound like Mozart, even when they are just casual dances. Tintner seats the second violins, as on all the Tintner Memorial reissues, to the right of proceedings, gaining in antiphonal effect, something that is here well-captured by the exemplary engineering. The booklet with notes in three languages is also very good, introducing not only the music but also the performers. There is a complete track list with all the "Köchel" numbers to boot. At the Naxos price, this is a marvellous deal, not to be missed. The only rival recording I have heard has been Bruno Weil's Sony recording of the "German Dances" on period instruments, but it did not hold me as enthralled as Tintner's has been doing for a couple of days.
