1930s Mozart Revival

June 21, 2014

The 1930s were a great era for the revival of Mozart's music. Sir Thomas Beecham's recordings of Mozart's music with the London Philharmonic set a enviably high standard. The recording of Mozart's operas at the Glyndebourne festival began the revival of these works on international stages. Pianists such as Arthur Schnabel and Edwin Fischer made famous recordings of Mozart's concertos and chamber works. We will sample some of the great recordings.
