AllMusic Review by

Mozart for a Merry Christmas is a joyous compilation that contains many of Mozart's sprightliest pieces, as performed by a variety of orchestras, chamber quartets, and wind ensembles. It's certainly not designed for serious classical fans -- it's for casual listeners who may be curious about Mozart or may want a lite classical album for holiday parties. Mozart for a Merry Christmas suits those purposes just fine and may even spark a greater interest in the music for some listeners.
