Event description

Description

The project stems from the research of the flutist James Strauss performed; from four works by Mozart that were only known through correspondence between Mozart and his contemporaries and which were lost until the present day.

The pieces; Concerto in D Major KV. Deest, quoted in two letters and a diary, performed on July 26th, 1777 ( manuscript found in Poland in 2016 and rebuilt by Canadian pianist Anders Musken)

The Grand Concertante for 2 flutes and orchestra, based on the sonata for 2 pianos K.448, an anonymous arrangement published by M.A Menzel in 1820.

And the Cantata - Per la Ricuperata di Ofelia, written for the soprano Nancy Storace by Mozart-Salieri and Josef II - discovered in 2015 in Prague, and presented for the first time with the soprano Kate Rafferty in Vienna in 2016 - and here presented for the first time in the Orchestral version rebuilt by James Strauss. This unpublished repertoire will be held on July 26th, 2019, in Vienna, Austria, and in Bogotá, on October 31, for the premiere in South America.

The Flute Concerts were recently recorded with the Camerata Simon Bolivar with James Strauss as soloist and director.

The importance of these works of "The Genius of Salzburg" is enormous and finally, available to the great worldwide public.
