When the greater part of the programme on this disc was released as the BIS 2005 Catalogue Disc, the response was electrifying. Sharon Bezaly was described as “God’s gift to the flute” in The Times, and a quote from the review in BBC Music Magazine is representative: “Bezaly's exquisite, technically immaculate, compelling playing sets new standards in this repertoire, as do Kalevi Aho's stunning cadenzas, composed especially for this recording.

This staggeringly successful title is now made available again with the important inclusion of a newly made recording of the Concerto for Flute and Harp.

At a session in October 2007, BIS reunited the performers and recording crew of the original disc, with the addition of the eminent harpist Julie Palloc as co-soloist. Furthermore, Finnish composer Kalevi Aho again provided the cadenzas for the work, as he had for the other concertos on the disc.

The result is not to be missed – a 24 carat, complete collection of all Mozart’s works for flute and orchestra, on a hybrid SACD.
