HHHHHMozart & Stadler Basset-horn Divertimenti (ASV Gaudeamus) The quaint basset-horn, slightly more elongated than a clarinet (and therefore occasionally compressed, as witness the cover of this disc), has a sound almost as soul-baring as that of a saxophone.
An aggressive chorus, a wan quartet of soloists, despite the obvious engagement of bass Christopher Purves, an orchestra which to my ears included clarinets rather than the sad warm tones of Mozart's basset-horns, and Egarr's brisk conducting, eradicated the loving aura of Mozart's very special deathbed work.
