About the album

The flute and the harp: a marriage consecrated by Mozart’s double concerto. The dilettante flautist, Duc de Guines, who commissioned this work, and his daughter who, according to Mozart ‘played the harp magnificently’, were among the countless flautists and harpists enlivening the otherwise somewhat dull musical ‘soirées’ held in salons of Paris and London to St-Petersburg till well into the nineteenth century. Celebrated contemporaries such as N.-Ch. Bochsa, Cramer, Furstenau, Krumpholz, Nadermann, Woelfl etc. promptly turned out dozens of sonatas, polonaises, nocturnes, variations and paraphrases for these beloved salon instruments.
