In anticipation of the Mozart Year 2006, Hartmut Haenchen conducted his Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach Chamber Orchestra in an all-Mozart Programme recorded live at the 19th century Konzerthaus Berlin in November 2005.
The ensemble succeeded in bringing to life the music’s manifold characteristics through the translucency achieved by a small chamber orchestra. Whether light-heartedness, song-like lyricism, drama or inspired polyphonic writing: every element of their performance breathes the spirit of Mozart.
Critics have praised the orchestra’s stylistic assurance, transparent textures and technical precision. Conductor Hartmut Haenchen is a highly dedicated artist, who can draw on broad experience. He exudes warmth and charm and Stefan Vladar’s extraordinarily sensitive touch and stylistic assurance make the prize-winning pianist an ideal partner for Haenchen and his orchestra.
