"The performances are stylish and idiomatic while employing modern instruments. Sound is warm and accurate, with notable spaciousness and savory timbres, especially in the solos. ... the selection of concertos should prove especially pleasing ... on all counts: music, performance, sound, this is an excellent CD."
- Fanfare

This album features four Mozart wind concertos, for horn, flute, bassoon and oboe, performed by top soloists with the Concertgebouw Chamber Orchestra. There are many parallels between Mozart's solo concertos and his arias. By harmonizing virtuosity and dramatic expression, Mozart portrayed different characters in an ingenious manner. The “vocal” nature of the solo parts is, logically, strongly present in the works for wind instruments. After all, singing is based on breathing; naturally this is also the case in wind music.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
