Michala Petri’s new recording of W.A. Mozart’s flute quartets is the first time on CD that a recorder replaces the traditional transverse flute in these popular works.
Michala Petri has had a special flute type developed for the Classical repertoire, and for this recording she has hand-picked three of Europe’s leading young string soloists: the much sought-after German violinist Carolin Widmann and two soloists from Gidon Kremer’s elite orchestra Kremerata Baltica, the viola player Ula Ulijona and the cellist Marta Subrada. With these women at the helm Mozart’s quartets are given a new, refreshing sound captured in this release from OUR Recordings in Super Audio CD quality.
This disc was released to mark Michala Petri’s 50th birthday on 7th July 2008.
