Musician's or Publisher's Notes
Flutist Mathieu Dufour and oboist Alex Klein -- current and former
principal players of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra -- shine as
soloists in a CD of neglected gems from the early Romantic era.
Charming virtuosic showpieces by Mendelssohn contemporaries Wilhelm
Bernhard Molique and Ignaz Moscheles astound with their fresh melodies
-- and with the jaw-dropping technique and expressive range they elicit
from the wind soloists. Opening the program is a jewel of the high
Classical period: Domenico Cimarosa's beloved Concerto for Two Flutes
(played on flute and oboe).
