Mozart bequeathed wind players some of their most charming and expressive music – think of those delightful concertos for oboe, clarinet, horn and bassoon. That team assembles for an irresistibly winsome quartet-concerto.
Sure, this Sinfonia concertante hasn’t survived in quite the form it was completed by Mozart, but it is Mozart at its core, and the four winds could easily be singers in a buoyant ensemble number from one of his operas.
The Symphony No.29 has a magnetic appeal that is authentically Mozartian. The vivid theatricality of its first movement curtain-raiser draws us to the edge of our seats, while the dazzling finale sparks like a firework.
