“A thoroughly democratic balance of forces is evident in ''Music at the Court of Mannheim'', a distinct and adventurous foray into early classical repertoire heralding Harnoncourt's debut recording for Teldec; a legendary career itself was born in the alert strains of these pioneering works" Gramophone

“Colourful music by Schmelzer and Fux, pungent sounds from the end of Harnoncourt's pioneering 1960s…" BBC Music Magazine

A series of the finest and rare recordings make up the one and only album ever recorded by Nikolaus Harnoncourt for EMI (now Warner Classics). A wide-ranging and superb collection of tunes which will transport you directly at the Leopold I court in Vienna in the late XVIIth century.
