Notes & Reviews:

In the year of his 80th birthday, Claudio Abbado and his superb orchestra continue their Mozart celebration with critically acclaimed solo concerto performances.

This third of a three album series of Mozart wind compositions puts Claudio Abbado's inimitable, refined stamp on this music of vigor, grace and beauty.

Reviewing the first album of this series, The Guardian wrote: "... once again Abbado conducts with a wonderfully light touch.

Guilhaume Santana's bassoon - mournfully and boisterous by turn - exploits every interpretive possibility in Mozart's earliest surviving wind concerto, the Bassoon Concert, K. 191.

The Arcadian chase that is the Flute Concerto No. 2, K. 314 proves an exhilarating and easy conquest of perfection by flautist Jacques Zoon.

Clarinettist Alessandro Carbonare spins tonal majesty out of thin air in the reflective Concerto in A, K. 622.

Especially the second movement of the clarinet concert is known for its use in famous movie "Out of Africa" 1985 by Sydney Pollack (starring Robert Redford and Meryl Streep).

The Times
Abbado's remarkable metamorphosis into a born-again Mozartian is the most gratifying development of his late, precious Indian summer.

La Voce
(Clarinettist) Carbonare ideally brings out the concerto's great lyricism (in K 622). His rapport with the conductor is perfect!

Orfeonellarete.it
The superb (bassoonist) Guilhaume Santana... with his wonderfully limpid, fluid tone (in K 191).
