One of the main advantages that period performances hold over those on modern instruments is that they allow one to more clearly hear the articulation of and between the various instruments. In modern instrument performances of Mozart's orchestral compositions, edges tend to be blurred and this detracts from the exquisite musical arguments contained within each piece. This is not so much a problem with performances of Mozart's chamber music however, as there are fewer instruments to crowd the scene, and each musician retains greater control over the sustainment of each note.
Unquestionably, these 'period' performances by Trevor Pinnock are the best renditions I have heard of Mozart's symphonies. They have all the benefits of crisp articulation and yet they retain all of the drama you would expect to experience in a modern instrument recording. An excellent set in every way!
