Jean-Francois Paillard Mozart: Concerto For Flute & Harp Clarinet Concerto
This is the most successful recording in the Erato history: Mozart's Flute and Harp Concerto and Clarinet Concerto by the most wonderful cast of the 1960s, Jean-Pierre Rampal and Lily Laskine for the first one, and Jacques Lancelot for the second, all accompanied by Jean-FranÃ§ois Paillard and his chamber orchestra. A recording full of refinement and elegance which particularly suits to these two works.On January 7th we will celebrate the 100th anniversary of Jean-Pierre Rampal's birth, the leading flautist of his time who brought his instrument to the firmament and made it so popular around the world. Flautist Eugenia Zukerman said of him after he died in 2000: "He played with such a rich palette of color in a way that few people had done before and no one since. He had an ability to imbue sound with texture and clarity and emotional content. He was a dazzling virtuoso, but more than anything he was a supreme poet."
