Daniel Majeske, Robert Vernon, Christoph von Dohnanyi
"Mozart: Sinfonia Concertante" (CD)

I just found this recording a few weeks ago.  I believe this is a re-bundling of previously released Cleveland Orchestra recordings.  Everything on this album fits the bill of "lite fare."  In addition to the Sinfonia Concertante there's a recording of the flute and harp concerto and the ever popular 'Eine kleine Nachtmusik.'

Majeske and Vernon's performance is relaxed and singing. Vernon particularly does so many things that I recall from studying under him that it's a refreshing reminder to hear his approach.   "Don't stop the sound!"

The orchestra backs the soloists expertly, as one could expect.
