Performance:   Sonics:
This is another fine disc from Boston Baroque and Telarc, with a program of 2 flute concertos and the Jupiter symphony. The concertos are the only flute music that Mozart composed, and one of them is a reworked oboe concerto. They are splendid, and well played by BB and flutist Jacques Zoon.
The Jupiter symphony here is also wonderfully done, and sounds light, open, and airy. The tempos seem a bit fast, especially the first movement. But the overall timing isn't much quicker than others.
In comparison to the Runnicles/St.Luke's disc, I find I prefer the period instrument sound and slightly quicker pace of the Telarc disc. Well Recommended

Performance:   Sonics:
I wholeheartedly agree. Combining two flute concertos with the Jupiter Symphony is quite unusual, but it helps to close a gap because the Runnicles version of the Jupiter does not really fill the bill. Telarc have managed to make even period instruments sound "seductive". The tonal quality of the flute, an instrument which Mozart thoroughly disliked, is captured most realistically. Ironically, the Telarc label was once proud of its clinical "pure digital" sound which lacked the very features which are now so prominent: mellifluous strings, blooming woodwind and well-rounded brass.
Pearlman and his group avoid the extremes of the "authenticity" school. They prefer a fluent, but dynamic approach which I find very satisfactory. The highly transparent recording reveals many details of orchestration which are barely audible on a normal CD. Highly recommended.
