Gramophone Recordings Mozart Symphony


DESPITE the difficulties of war-time production, each month produces a few notable records. Among these Mozart's Symphony, No. 34 in C major. K. 338, by the Boston Symphony Orchestra under Serge Koussevitsky. is a good example of Mozart's power of symphony building on a small but perfect scale. There are three records, six sides, to this work.

Two excerpts are given from " The Love of the Three Oranges," by Prokofieff. and are played by the N.B C. Ssmphony Orchestra under Leopold Stokowski. Recorded under tlee auspices of the British 'Council. the third Symphony of Arnold Bax receives a vivid recording front the Halle Orchestra under John Barbirolli. This is a long work of six records. twelve sides, but it is a very good investment for the admirers of this eminent musician.
