Notes and Editorial Reviews

After a first recording exploring the spirit of the 'symphonie concertante', the Freiburger Barockorchester presents the second installment of its trilogy devoted to the concertos of Mozart. Performance on period instruments is all the more revealing here in that wind instruments were then undergoing an era of rapid development. Constantly pushing forward the frontiers of technique and expressiveness, these works also offer us a truculent portrait of the composer's close rapport with his soloists.
