Notes and Editorial Reviews

An anthology of Mozart's only original works for flute, initiated by a commission by a 'Dutchman from the Indies', an amateur flautist to whom we also owe the Quartet in D and the Concerto in G, taking inspiration from and paying tribute to the instrumentalist-composers of the Mannheim School, in particular his host, Joan Baptist Wendling (1723-1797), a talented flautist and emulator of Quantz. Yoshimi Oshima returns to the capital of Bohemia and his friends from the Kocian Quartet to record these summits of classical literature for transverse flute with a single key (notes with sharps) with a full and even sonority, accurate and virtuoso, that would have delighted the composer.
