Notes & Reviews:
Ignaz Holzbauer's extraordinarily expressive musical language, so very close to that of Mozart, has been known to members of the CPO listening audience ever since the release of his opera 'Gunther von Schwarzburg'. He composed a great deal of chamber music for flute as well as flute concertos in which the solo instrument was to be accompanied exclusively by a four-part string orchestra. In his concertos Holzbauer fit melody and theme for the requirements of the flute ("like a finely tailored garment," as Mozart put it), while also incorporating characteristic orchestral effects of the Mannheim school and beating rhythms a la Vivaldi.
