Mozart Haydn Bassoon Concerto & Serenade

Sergio Azzolini
Description:
Once again the bassoonist and early music specialist Sergio Azzolini has recorded an exciting new programme with the Streicherakademie Bozen. The repertoire lures listeners into the baroque splendours of Salzburg in the year 1775, presenting a summer serenade from Mozart’s own day. Besides Mozart’s only Bassoon Concerto (K.191), a work of virtuosic runs and breathtaking leaps and trills for the bassoonist, it showcases a serenade by Michael Haydn (1737–1806), reconstructed by Azzolini himself. This splendid eight-movement piece has never been recorded in this form before. Azzolini has reconstructed it from manuscripts in Lambach Abbey, where seven of its eight movements are preserved. They combine Haydn’s Symphony no. 14 (MH 133), the two-movement Trumpet Concerto in D major (MH 104), its daredevil solo passages marvellously played by the Hungarian trumpeter Fruzsina Hara, and three other movements not found in the Haydn catalogue. Azzolini and the Streicherakademie Bozen bookend the Serenade with two marches: one by Michael Haydn from the Divertimento MH 412, and another from Mozart’s Kassation K.99. A recording abounding in musical variety, virtuosic aplomb and orchestral brilliance.
