About the album

An album with four sonatas by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Three of them are arranged for flute and piano by Ludwig Wenzel Lachnith (1746-1820). Yoav Talmi made the arrangement of the fourth sonata for the same instruments. All in all, this album has turned out well in this form. Flautist Er’ella Talmi, accompanied by her husband Yoav Talmi and Tomer Lev on the piano, have made it into a fine and tranquil whole. A pleasure to listen to.

The gifted flautist Er’ella Talmi was born in Israel. She graduated from Julliard School of Music in New York. She has performed with many high-profile orchestras in America and Europe. Since 1992 she has served as the music director for the “Tones and Colors” series in Tel Aviv. She is the wife of Yoav Talmi, who has arranged the fourth Sonata on this release.

Yoav Talmi is a well-known and celebrated conductor. His long and impressive career spans several continents. Talmi saw the light of day in the kibbutz Merhavia in Palestine. He studied composition and orchestra direction at the Rubin academy in Tel Aviv and went to Julliard in New York later on. Talmi was, amongst others, principal conductor of the Gelders Orkest and is a sought after conductor throughout the world. He composed the official march of the Israeli army, Tsahal Tso'ed, an elegy for strings, timpani and accordion. In 2008 he directed a historical performance of the Eight Symphony by Gustav Mahler to mark the 400th anniversary of the city of Quebec in Canada. His baton directed thousands of musicians. Four orchestras, fifteen choirs and eight soloists were gathered for a spectacle which drew 12.000 visitors to the Quebec Coliseum.

Ludwig Wenzel Lachnith (Prague, 1746 - Paris, 1820) was not only a virtuoso horn player, but also a versatile composer. In his chamber works he was influenced by Joseph Haydn and Ignaz Pleyel. He is primarily known for his arrangements of operas. His arrangement of the music and libretto of Mozart’s Zauberflöte was a resounding success. The French composer Hector Berlioz thought differently about it, however, and even devoted a tirade to him in his autobiography.
Een album met vier sonates van Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Drie ervan zijn voor fluit en piano bewerkt door Ludwig Wenzel Lachnith (1746-1820). Yoav Talmi maakte het arrangement voor de vierde sonate voor dezelfde instrumenten. Alles met elkaar is dit album in deze vorm goed uitgepakt. Fluitiste Er'ella Talmi, samen met haar man Yoav Talmi en Tomer Lev, die haar op de piano begeleiden, hebben er een fijn verstild geheel van gemaakt. Een genot om naar te luisteren.

De in Israël geboren Er'ella Talmi is een begenadigd fluitiste. Zij studeerde af aan de Juilliard School of Music in New York. Ze treedt op bij vooraanstaande orkesten in Amerika en Europa. Sinds 1992 is ze dirigent van de serie 'Tones and Colors' in Tel Aviv. Ze is de vrouw van Yoav Talmi die de vierde sonate van dit album arrangeerde.

Yoav Talmi is een bekend en gevierd dirigent. Zijn lange en indrukwekkende carrière omspant diverse continenten. Talmi zag het levenslicht in de kibboets Merhavia in Palestina. Hij studeerde compositie en orkestdirectie aan de Rubin academie in Tel Aviv en ging later naar Juilliard in New York. Talmi was onder andere chef-dirigent van het Gelders Orkest en is overal ter wereld een veelgevraagd dirigent. Hij componeerde onder andere de officiële mars van het Israëlische leger Tsahal Tso'ed een klaagzang voor snaren, pauk en accordeon. In 2008 dirigeerde hij een historische uitvoering van de Achtste Symfonie van Gustav Mahler ter gelegenheid van het 400-jarig bestaan van de stad Québec in Canada. Zijn baton stuurde duizend musici aan. Vier orkesten, vijftien koren en acht solisten waren verzameld voor een spektakel dat 12.000 bezoekers trok in het Québec Coliseum. Los van zijn kwaliteiten als dirigent en componist, speelt Yoav Talmi verdienstelijk piano. Hij begeleidt zijn vrouw Er'ella regelmatig tijdens haar opnames, zoals op dit album te beluisteren valt.

Ludwig Wenzel Lachnith (Praag, 1746 - Parijs, 1820) was niet alleen een virtuoos hoornspeler, maar ook een veelzijdig componist. In zijn kamermuziek werd hij beïnvloed door Joseph Haydn en Ignaz Pleyel. Maar hij staat vooral bekend om zijn bewerkingen van opera's. Zijn arrangement van de muziek en het libretto van Mozarts Zauberflöte, was een doorslaand succes bij het publiek. De Franse componist Hector Berlioz dacht er anders over en wijdde zelfs een tirade aan hem in zijn autobiografie.

Along with Johann Sebastian Bach and Ludwig van Beethoven, Mozart is considered to be one of the most influential composers of all of music's history.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, whose actual name is Joannes Chrysotomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart, was a composer, pianist, violinist and conductor from the classical period, born in Salzburg. Mozart was a child prodigy. Already competent on keyboard and violin, he composed from the age of five and performed before European royalty. Along with Johann Sebastian Bach and Ludwig van Beethoven, Mozart is considered to be one of the most influential composers of all of music's history. Within the classical tradition, he was able to develop new musical concepts which left an everlasting impression on all the composers that came after him. Together with Joseph Haydn and Ludwig van Beethoven he is part of the First Viennese School. At 17, Mozart was engaged as a musician at the Salzburg court, but grew restless and traveled in search of a better position. From 1763 he traveled with his family through all of Europe for three years and from 1769 he traveled to Italy and France with his father Leopold after which he took residence in Paris. On July 3rd, 1778, his mother passed away and after a short stay in Munich with the Weber family, his father urged him to return to Salzburg, where he was once again hired by the Bishop. While visiting Vienna in 1781, he was dismissed from his Salzburg position. He chose to stay in the capital, where he achieved fame but little financial security. During his final years in Vienna, he composed many of his best-known symphonies, concertos, and operas, and portions of the Requiem, which was largely unfinished at the time of his death.
