ArtistsJuliette Hurel (flute)
Alpha is pleased to welcome again the great flautist Juliette Hurel, who has made several recordings for ZZT and Outhere in the past. This recording is the result of the fruitful encounter between the flautist and the Voce Quartet, which occurred in the inspiring framework of the Ferme de Villefavard in the Limousin region.
En route to Paris, Mozart stayed in Mannheim in 1777, obtaining a commission for several works on behalf of an amateur flautist who was also a rich and distinguished surgeon, formerly engaged in the Dutch East India Company. The flute imposed itself undeniably as solo instrument in these scores imbued with concertante writing and the gallant style characteristic of the taste of the Mannheim court at that time.
Some of the quartets would be composed later, in Vienna, such as the jovial K.298 in which each movement takes up a familiar tune, which Mozart either varied or parodied.
