Notes & Reviews:

LAWO Classics is proud to present the WDR Symphony Orchestra Cologne's first release on the label! On this CD we hear the orchestra's own soloists, Ole Kristian Dahl and Thorsten Johanns, playing Mozart's first and last wind concertos under the direction of conductors Karl Heinz Steffens and Eivind Aadland, respectively.

The WDR Symphony of Cologne presents the "Alpha and Omega" of Mozart's wind concertos, both recorded in concert in June 2011. Principal Clarinet Thorsten Johanns takes center stage with Norwegian maestro Eivind Aadland on the podium. Principal Bassoon Ole Kristian Dahl is a native of Norway as well, but this time Berlin Philharmonic clarinetist turned- conductor Karl-Heinz Steffens takes the baton. The production begins well, with a handsome and muscular Bassoon Concerto. Dahl offers a robust tone, excellent technical facility, a highly varied color palette, and wonderful sensitivity; and the orchestra matches him with confidence and energy.
