Notes and Editorial Reviews
In the year of his 80th birthday, Claudio Abbado and his superb orchestra continue their Mozart celebration with critically acclaimed solo concerto performances.
"The superb [bassoonist] Guilhaume Santana...with his wonderfully limpid, fluid tone [in K 191]" (orfeonellarete.it)
This third of a three album series of Mozart wind compositions puts Claudio Abbado's inimitable, refined stamp on this music of vigour, grace and beauty.
Reviewing the first album of this series, The Guardian wrote: "once again Abbado conducts with a wonderfully light touch."
Guilhaume Santanas bassoon mournfully and boisterous by turn exploits every interpretive possibility in Mozarts
earliest surviving wind concerto, the Bassoon Concerto , 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.
The Times wrote: "Abbado's remarkable metamorphosis into a born-again Mozartian is the most gratifying development of his late, precious Indian summer."
