About

"Stern chez Mozart"

This was how the French music critic Clarendon – the pen name of Bernard Gavoty – deaded his review in Le Figaro on 30 January 1973. The previous evening, Isaac Stern had perfomed two of Mozart's violin concertos with the Orchestre de Chambre de l'ORTF under the direction of Alexander Schneider. The concert was part of a larger project devised by Pierre Vozlinsky for French television and intended to capture all Mozart's great concertos on film. In order to showcase the event and ensure that it was adequately prepared, each recording in the Buttes-Chaumont studios was preceded by a concert at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées.
To ensure that the operation was a success, top-flight soloists were needed, together with a conductor capable of rousing the Orchestre de Chambre de l'ORTF from its habitual lethargy. Vozlinsky thought that Alexander Schneider was the man for the job.
