For this album Ms. Barton Pine worked with the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields and conductor Sir Neville Marriner. She has been listening to Sir Marriner and the Academy play Mozart ever since she was a child. She grew up listening to them on LP records given to her by her mother. Collaborating with these musicians was a dream she fulfilled. You can hear the level of dedication and passion from her and the Academy when you listen to this record. She has a very fine understanding of Mozart and expresses his music dramatically. She and her collaborators were detailed and precise during the recording process and didn’t stop until they achieved the perfect sound.
