Mozart’s Concerto In D Major For Flute And Orchestra is actually a reworking of the earlier C major Oboe Concerto. When Mozart came to be pressured by time for a commission for the Dutchman Ferdinand Dejean, he decided to rewrite his Oboe concerto instead of writing a new concerto for Flute. When Dejean realised this, so the story goes, he refused to pay Mozart for the Flute concerto.
This widely studied piece consists of 3 movements: Allegro aperto, Adaggio ma non troppo and Rondeau. The Bärenreiter publication is based on Franz Giegling’s edition as found in the New Mozart Edition (NME), and thus stays as close to the original as possible. An extra brochure with cadenzas and lead-ins by Rachel Brown and Korad Hünteler is included, as well as a reference score with the Urtext Flute part set above the Urtext Oboe part (transported to D major) – in this way players can quickly determine where the differences lay, which is a great aid to performers. The Orchestra part is transcribed into an easy to play Keyboard reduction, and the publication comes with a third brochure, the separate Flute Urtext of the NME.
