Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Die Zauberflöte
Divertimento KV 439b
Le nozze di Figaro

Heinz-Peter Linshalm basset horn
Petra Stump basset horn
Reinhold Brunner basset horn
Milan Turkovic bassoon

With the support of Reinhold Brunner, basset horn, and Milan Turkovic, bassoon, on this CD with works by W. A. Mozart the clarinet duo of Petra Stump/Heinz-Peter Linshalm, highly praised for their performances of contemporary compositions (including numerous commissioned works), present a programme from the heyday of the basset horn. The beginning is provided by a comprehensive cross-section through Die Zauberflöte, KV 620, the successful arrangements of which for basset horn probably did not derive from Mozart’s own pen despite his well-known predilection for the instrument, but from contemporaries and also originate from recent years, including the one by Heinz-Peter Linshalm. The same applies to the Divertimento Le nozze di Figaro for 3 basset horns and bassoon KV 492, for which famous arias from the opera of the same name form the basis. By contrast, the Divertimento No. 3 KV 439b (KV Annex 229) and the Adagio in F major KV 410 undoubtedly constitute original works by Mozart for 2 basset horns and bassoon.
