Cadenzas – Concertos for Flute and Orchestra, G Major KV313 and D Major KV314
Cadenzas – Concertos for Flute and Orchestra, G Major KV313 and D Major KV314 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Cadenzas by Alois Bernd Zimmermann, Published by Schott.
The fact that one of the outstanding composers of the second half of the 20th century writes cadenzas for flute concertos by Mozart can be regarded as a curiosity. For Zimmermann, it was a good turn for a friend, a flutist. Unfortunately, the latter has never performed these cadenzas. The cadenza for the Concerto in G major and the two cadenzas for the Concerto in D major are not difficult to play and follow the spirit of Mozart. This edition continues the successful Cadenza series of Schott Music, this time with the flute as solo instrument.
