Kozeluch Divertimenti for Winds

  • Symphony for Wind
  • Octet Concertant
  • Sextet No. 3
  • Octet
  • Cassation

Leopold Kozeluch (1747-1818) was a Czech, active in Vienna during Mozart’s years there and after. The wind works recorded here, which call for ensembles of various sizes, are cheerful, lively pieces, attractively and effectively written if of no great depth. One has a virtuoso solo part for oboe, and all call for some fairly athletic clarinet playing. The Consortium Classicum is equal to the music’s technical demands and does it ample justice, catching the warmth of the slow movements and the high spirits of the quick ones as well as the occasional wit – for example in the Octet.'
