Producers note: This recording was one of the first made in DXD after I adopted this format in 2005 (dCS prototype ADC's), still revolutionary in 2006 and most likely one of the first recordings fully processed in 352,8kS/s/24bit! I decided to have another go on the mix for the master files, now 16 years later with the progressive insight about and acquired tools over the years for this stunning high resolution. It was a pleasure to find the hidden gems within these tracks.

The four works recorded here originated in Salzburg in the years 1769 and 1773 respectively, and are, together with the Serenade KV 100 (62a), the earliest surviving compositions of Mozart in this category. In the eighteenth century the generic concepts of Cassation, Divertimento or Serenade were not precisely established, and were used inconsistently by Mozart himself.
