The band's sound combined with Nitzsche's timeless production style, which combined with that voice to create a purer rock & roll noise than even Bruce Springsteen's in 1981. The evidence is on the anthems "Maybe Tomorrow," the slippery doo-wop feel of "Love and Emotion," and the devastating read of Arthur Alexander's "You Better Move On" that includes in its soulful Spanish stroll mix a pair of marimbas and the ever-lamenting accordion, turning the track into something that is so deadly serious it should have perhaps been in West Side Story. This was Mink DeVille near their zenith as a recording unit.
Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante for violin, viola, and orchestra is one of his greatest masterpieces. It was a joy and an honour to record Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante.
Dittersdorf Symphony Concertante in D major for viola and double bass written circa 1775. The viola and the double bass are certainly the two most unreasonably neglected soloists among the orchestral strings; to pair them in a sinfonia concertante may well in the first place have been a charitable idea on Dittersdorf's part.

Matthias Kirschnereit is one of the leading German pianists of his generation. His international solo career has taken him to five continents. He has very close links to the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra, with whom he is recording Mozart's collected piano concertos for Arte Nova. Kirschnereit's fascination with Mozart's piano concertos dates back to his youth.
