Released: Sep 2011
Label: Sony Classical
Part of the ambitious Symphony Edition box set, this recording of Mozart's two most famous symphonies is from 1961. Like all of Bernstein's recordings with the New York Philharmonic from the period, it was completed in a single day. The orchestra under his baton is a well-oiled machine, and this is a definitive recording of the works. The box set commemorates the 20th anniversary of Bernstein's death.
