I own four or five complete sets of Mozart violin concertos but there’s always room for another set when it’s of this quality. Rachel Barton Pine and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields with Sir Neville Marriner deliver entertaining performances of these works. Matthew Lipman is excellent on the viola. Rachel Barton Pine wrote some informative liner notes that reveal how these concertos work. If you enjoy Mozart, you’ll enjoy this CD. GRADE: A-

    We’ve been to St. Martin in the Fields more than once on our visits to London, across the road from Trafalgar Square.

    We hear more live classical music here than in Detroit. We just have a five block walk to the venue. Today they are doing Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart : The Complete Sonatas for Violin and Piano with Victoria Martino, violin; James Lent, piano. It is tempting but the sun is shining and the ocean is across the street. More tempting at night.

      Patti, it’s a frigid 25 degrees here this morning. No sun is shining. You’re smart to be in a better place! If I were there, I’d be going to hear Victoria and James play Mozart.

    We’ve usually been there when they had art shows, Rick, We have seen small groups playing but nothing major like this.

    I saw a jazz group play there already this week. And in ten days we are seeing a classical concert. The wallet is stretched!
