MOZART: SINFONIA CONCERTANTE (MUSIC FOR FRENCH HORN) - BABORAK, VLATKOVIC, AUER, DENT-BOGANYI, BOGANYI, BABORAK ENSEMBLE

$ 22.80 $ 25.99

Warning: this recording is not intended for musicological purists. But if you love spontaneous music making in the most select of company, this is definitely the right recording for you. Radek Baborák, for example, does not hesitate to arrange a discarded movement from a symphony to add as the missing movements of an unfinished horn concerto. Of course, to tell the truth, didn't Mozart himself do the exact same thing countless times? In this way, the preserved fragments are turned into two "new horn concertos". The Sinfonia concertante for four wind instruments and orchestra, K 297b is a work surrounded by many mysteries, and it fits beautifully in this context of discovery. Here, it is recorded in Baborák's arrangement for Mozart's original instrumentation. Playing the solo parts are virtuosos from Europe's best orchestras. For the 12 Horn Duets – the only completely extant composition on this album played in its original instrumentation – Baborák's partner is another of today's legendary horn players, Radovan Vlatković. Radek Baborák and his friends are inviting you on an excursion to the world of their elder colleague Wolfgang Amadeus – with his inexhaustible supply of jokes, ideas, and colours.
