The music written for the historical drama Thamos, König von Ägypten was unique for Mozart, although this kind of music was not unusual for its day. The so-called entr’actes served to fill the time between scenes or acts.
Peter Maag and the London Symphony Orchestra stage an excellent performance with their exquisite tone, exemplary dynamics and shaping of this wonderful music which reveals the splendidly colourful scores of one of the greatest musical phenomena: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
