Cadenzas for Flute Concertos in G major and D major, and for the Concerto for Flute and Harp, KV313,314 & 315


  • Interesting, worth a look

Our Description

Pahud follows classical tradition by crafting his own cadenzas to the Mozart Flute Concerti, using Mozart's writing as a launch pad and style cue. An excellent comparison to the Berio cadenza above, to note differences in approach and flow. For advanced performers.

Composer's Notes

"During my studies and in masterclasses and competitions I have heard every imaginable cadenza to Mozart's flute concertos. So I decided that I wanted to develop something more personal for my own use in solo concerts and auditions - my own subjective contribution. I sought to continue the function and voice of the solo flute while making the transitions between tutti and solo organic. I drew inspiration from Mozart's own cadenzas to his piano concertos...I sketched my ideas on paper and re-worked them for each performance until, after a few years, they assumed the shape in which they now appear." - Emmanuel Pahud
