The complete set of Mozart's works issued by Philips records in 1991 has for the lucky owner many joys and advantages.

On this week's Classics of the Phonograph, Saturday at 11 am on WILL-FM, I will try to demonstrate the diversity of Mozart's genius. Just this past week, the death of Sir Neville Marriner was announced. The recordings of the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields figure prominently in the complete edition, so I will highlight Marriner's recordings on this program.
