Irena Grafenauer and François Leleux are two internationally renowned woodwind soloists, who emerged from the ranks of the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks. The 1981 recording of the Flute Concerto K. 313 with the Slovenian soloist Irena Grafenauer is an item of very special value in the Symphonieorchester’s discography, because it is one of the few recordings with the great Günter Wand on the conductor’s podium. François Leleux ranks today as one of the most sought-after oboe soloists in the world. This CD presents him in 2001 with Mozart’s Oboe Concerto accompanied by “his” orchestra, in which he held the position of principal oboist until 2005, with Sir Colin Davis, the long-standing Chief Conductor of the orchestra. The live recording of the short, one-movement Symphony K. 318, which conjures up the atmosphere of an Italian opera in the concert hall, was made during Colin Davis’s early years as Chief Conductor of the orchestra.
