Good exapmle of Mozart's spirit
M. Huang | Orange County , CA USA | 12/13/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"After listening to these pieces, it is hard to believe that Mozart hated the flute, at least that what it said in the liner notes. It isn't important weather or not Mozart liked or disliked the flute. What is important is that he wrote these beautiful pieces for that instrument. The music on this disc, especially the Concerto for Flute and harp K.299, gliters with Mozart's enthusiasm and optimistic energy. Combine this with James Galway, Marisa Robles (the only harpist that I know of), and the expert Mozartean Neville Marriner, what you get is a great Mozartean experience."
Charming and Definitive

"Mozart done well. I listen to this and try to pick out faults and reasons to write a slew of smart-sounding interjectons as to why this recording doesn't deserve five stars... and here I am, still trying. Galway is a bit of a commercial sellout in the fluteworld. His tone is gorgeous, his interpretatons cute, shimmering, and charming. He plays for the money and for the crowd. So in my quest to find a legitamate classical Galway recording I stumbled apon this gem of a disc. He sings the very familiar solos in a deleightfully charming way that no flutist should ever try to imitate. His tone is strong, singing, and breathtaking. His phrases are well communicated and stylish. His articulation is incredibly clean and precise. Intonatoin flawless. Technique amazing. His cadenzas are pleasing. They are a perfect example of Galway's style and charming mentality. Yes, James Galway and Sir Neville Mariner do wonderful justice to Mozart's three flute concertos. This disc is an unregretable buy for anyone. It is a perfect example of Mozart played well. The only comparably extensive and fulfilling Mozart flute recording I have heard is Emmanuel Pahud's."
Excellent concert's - favorites- a must for all

"I have this CD and love it. Concerto in G Major is great. I believe the sheet music has been put out in a version by Galway and so probably has the same cadenza's. These concertos are also in "24 Flute Concert Studies from J. S. Bach's Works and Famous Flute Solos", that I got from Southern Music Company a few years ago for $9.95, 160 pages. Contains 25+ major works including Bach's Suite in B minor, as well as all three of these concertos. These concertos are Mozart at his best, and Galway is great. If you can find a copy of sheet music for Mozart's Sonata 301K for violin adapted for flute somewhere, it's great too, but not on this CD."
