Mozart was a master at capturing the spirits of the instruments for which he wrote, perfectly exemplified here in the lighter-than-air Flute Concerto No. 2, the sprightly and playful Bassoon Concerto and in the interplay of the four soloists in the Sinfonia Concertante. These three exceptional works come to life in this studio recording with soloists of the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Principal conductor Vladimir Jurowski.
'The benefits of featuring the principal wind soloists of the LPO in this particular repertoire are much in evidence in the performance of the Sinfonia Concertante which boasts superbly coordinated ensemble ... the Finale’s set of variations is a particular delight with each member of the team relishing their opportunity for virtuosic display.'
'Juliette Bausor delivers a vivacious account of the Second Flute Concerto.'
'Jonathan Davies ... brings bags of personality to his performance.'
Erik Levi, BBC Music Magazine, March 2020
