Abbado’s Mozart


  • Music for Clarinet, Bassoon, and Flute

In this excellent recording, we hear Claudio Abbado’s players celebrate the wonder of Mozart’s music for wind instruments:


  • Clarinet Concerto in A major, K622

Alessandro Carbonare (clarinet)

  • Flute Concerto No. 2 in D major, K314

Jacques Zoon (flute)

  • Bassoon Concerto in B flat major, K191

Guilhaume Santana (bassoon)

Performed by the Orchestra Mozart, conducted by Claudio Abbado

In this recording, Claudio Abbado and his superb orchestra present their Mozart celebration with several  solo concerto performances.

The third of a three – album series of Mozart wind compositions puts Claudio Abbado’s  stamp on this music of  grace, charm, and beauty.

Guilhaume Santana’s bassoon – mournfully and boisterous by turn – exploits every interpretive possibility in Mozart’s earliest surviving wind concerto, the Bassoon Concerto , K. 191.

The  Flute Concerto No. 2, K. 314 proves to be an easy conquest of perfection by flautist Jacques Zoon;

And clarinettist Alessandro Carbonare spins tonal majesty out of thin air in the reflective Concerto in A, K. 622.

The Times wrote:

“. . . Abbados remarkable metamorphosis into a born-again Mozartian is the most gratifying development of his late, precious Indian summer”


Here is the Mozart Concerto for Flute and Orchestra.kv314. Emmanuel Pahud:

And next, here is the second movement of Mozart’s amazing clarinet concerto:
