Freiburg Baroque: Fun Mozart – a serious business

Mozart: Freiburg Baroque Orchestra ****

Wigmore Hall, 13th November 2014

Perhaps the best jokers keep the straightest faces. For much of this evening at Wigmore Hall, the body language of the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra portrayed serious musicians going about their serious business. Gottfried von der Goltz directed from the violin, his players dutifully following. Precision, polish, professionalism. Yet musically, the evening was life-affirming, a thing of joy, with all the fun coming from the playing itself.
