Notes & Reviews:

PentaTone is pleased to present a recording of some of Mozarts best known wind concertos. This album features the chamber orchestra of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and the soloists are the leaders of the wind sections. The Mozart wind concertos (other than the Clarinet Concerto, which PentaTone already recorded with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields and Andrew Marriner) have not yet been recorded in surround sound and this recording was specially conceived by PentaTone for the Mozart year.

Gramophone Classical Music Guide
This Concertgebouw survey of four wind concertos dates across a fair span of Mozart's adulthood. The First Horn Concerto was composed for Mozart's friend Joseph Leutgeb at Vienna in 1791; modern-day counterpart Jacob Slagter employs a warmly refulgent tone in his lively performance. Next, we have the First Flute Concerto (Paris, 1778). Emily Beynon's neatly executed, charming playing is well suited to the celebratory, sunny first movement. The Concertgebouw strings contribute hushed accompaniment in the Andantema non troppo.

Mozart's Salzburg years are represented by his Bassoon Concerto (1774) and Oboe Concerto (written in 1777 for the Italian oboist Giuseppe Ferlendis, who had joined the Salzburg court only a few months before). Bassoonist Gustavo Nuñez plays with fruity directness, displaying stunning agility in the Allegro and poignant playing in the Andante ma adagio. Alexei Ogrintchouk's oboe provides a melancholic Adagio nontroppo and a fluent impression of Mozart's felicitous inventiveness in the gleeful Rondo. All four soloists are principals of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. The chamber incarnation sounds playful yet at ease. Phrases are shaded off and chords often shortened, but there is no selfconsciousness or evident struggle in the pervading cheerful spirit.
