When he was eight years old Mozart wrote a series of duo sonatas sanctioned for violin or flute and keyboard. Written in London, they were dedicated to Queen Charlotte. The sonatas performed on this disc were written much later for violin but, using that earlier precedent, have been transcribed for flute by one of the world’s greatest exponents of the instrument, Patrick Gallois. Memorably tuneful, they represent different stages of Mozart’s development and are beautifully suited to their new guise.


   




Review By Gabriele Formenti,Cd Classico,

Siamo sempre più convinti che se Mozart avesse conosciuto il moderno flauto traverso o se avesse incontrato un esecutore di livello, certamente avrebbe amato alla follia questo strumento.

Invece le cronache ci narrano di un rapporto difficile fra il genio di Salisburgo e il flauto.

Certamente Mozart si ricrederebbe ascoltando il lavoro di arrangiamento approntato dall’eccellente flautista francese Patrick Gallois per l’etichetta budget price Naxos. L’idea è tanto semplice quanto originale: trascrivere alcune sonate per violino e pianoforte, destinandole al flauto.

Review By Barrett Cobb,New York Concert Review Inc.,March 2013

Maria Prinz is a fine pianist who plays with style and verve, always vital but never overpowering her partner. Mr. Gallois has a lovely sound, beguiling phrasing and especially clean articulation. No doubt many flutists and fans of flute music will find great pleasure in this new addition to the repertoire. © New York Concert Review Inc. Read complete review



Review By ouverture - Das Klassik-Blog,February 2013

Schaut man in sein Werkverzeich- nis, dann hat Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756 bis 1791) die Flöte nur sehr gelegentlich mit Kompositionen bedacht—was Flötisten bedauern. Denn seine beiden Flötenkonzerte, das Konzert für Flöte und Harfe, das Flötenquartett KV 285 sowie das berühmte Andante KV 315 sind durchaus gelungen, wenn man bedenkt, dass Mozart über die Flöte schrieb, sie sei “ein instrument, das ich nicht leiden kan’.
