EDITORIAL REVIEW
Mozart Modern succeeds in presenting Mozart's most timeless melodies in a totally new, richly rhythmical context, utilizing a widely eclectic mix of instruments ranging from traditional (symphonic) to modern instrumentation. The philosophy, reflected in the detailed liner notes of this luxurious digipak 2-disc fold-out release, is to free these famous melodies from the elitism of the concert halls, and re-arrange them in a coffeehouse style with instruments that include accordion, guitar, piano, ethnic percussion, synthesizers and beats. Every single piece is freshly re-arranged, while retaining the emotional impact and integrity of the original orchestration. Most importantly, this recording never once crosses the delicate line into artistic 'heresy'.

The musical influences span symphonic, pop, klezmer, latin and middle eastern, transporting this music into a modern context in a true 21st century merging of cultures. One is very tempted to imagine how other composers will sound in this style.


MOZART MODERN – Reinventing Classics
January 27th 2006 marked the 250th birthday of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. We thought it was fitting to use Mozart’s 250th anniversary as an opportunity to draw inspiration from his most famous works, and update them in a fresh, new context.


CAFÉ MOZART – The History [excerpts from CD liner notes]
[...]
By allowing a much more free structure of performance of the works of both major and unknown composers, the café ensembles would breed interesting musical hybrids, and create a common bond with the public.
[...]
Mozart can be regarded as the first defining artist who dared to venture into artistic freedom from the constraints of the time and commercial independence from the slavery of the patrons, his life always on the edge of poverty.

Auditory Bliss
Boris Berlin, Bob Parr, and their wonderful team of musicians have taken the legendary works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and transformed them. No longer is Mozart's music (though passionate in his day) seemingly drab to modern-day listeners. The diversity of instruments used along with the original masterpieces to create Cafe Mozart is astonishing. Mozart that one may dance to! I bought this album in November, and I have since spread the good word of Cafe Mozart cross country. Everyone that hears it automatically asks, "Who is this covering Mozart? Where can I get a copy?" This CD is truly a great joy at any time of the day. Also, parents who would like their children to become involved in the classics should listen to what these producers and their musicians have done. Boris and Bob, you are true geniuses!

Two of my most favorite CDs
I loved what the previous person wrote in her review... "So lovely it makes me want to cry and smile at the same time." That's exactly how I felt when listening to the CDs. An amazing job, really. I plan on getting another copy for my friend, I know she'll love the music as much as I do.
