Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791): Symphony No. 31 in D major, K. 297 "Paris". Wiener Philharmoniker; conductor: Nikolaus Harnoncourt. Recorded in the Vienna Musikverein. After having devoted himself to Baroque music for many years, Nikolaus Harnoncourt began turning increasingly to the orchestral works of Mozart in the 1980s. Here, too, Harnoncourt's views differed radically from those of traditional Mozart reception. For him, Mozart is "the most romantic composer of all", his music "dramatic, dynamic, often strikingly and exceedingly emotional".
