Whilst not a great recording, this CD is quite useful to have as it is one of the few to gather Mozart's three Concertos for reed instruments on one disc. The Cleveland Orchestra under Christoph von Dohnányi are, clearly, not a period instrument band (by any stretch of the imagination) and give quite weighty, traditional "big band" support to the soloists, who were all members of the orchestra at the time the recordings were made in 1991,1992, and 1993.

Perhaps surprisingly for a Decca recording, the sound is a bit recessed and benefits from being played at a higher than usual level.

The first work on the CD is the incomparable Concerto for clarinet and orchestra in A major, K622 and the soloist is Franklin Cohen who is, alas, a little lacking in individuality compared to, say, Paul Meyer on a Virgin Classics disc Wind Concertos I have or Lorenzo Coppola on Harmonia Mundi Mozart - The Last Concertos - Clarinet Concerto; Piano Concerto No 27. To be fair to Cohen, he is very smooth and technically perfect and you might find his approach a little less bland than I did.

Next we have the less well-known Concerto for oboe and orchestra in C major, K314 and the soloist is John Mack. This is the weakest performance here as Mack seems to be reading the score as he goes along. I prefer François Leleux on the Virgin disc above or a 1951 recording I have from Pierre Pierlot with Arthur Goldschmidt and the Lamoureux Concerts Association Orchestra on an Alpha CD

4.0 out of 5 stars Cohen sparkles; McGill Resonates; Mack Disappoints Greatly 25 May 2001
By M. Carter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I purchased this CD especially to hear Mack's rendition of the Mozart oboe concerto. Fortunately, I listened to the disc in order and heard Cohen's wondrous rendition of the clarinet concerto first. I was totally and completely blown away by the sweet sonority of his tone and his masterfully athletic technique. The first movement positively sparkles, and Cohen conveys the changing moods of the third movement in a way I've never heard it before.
Likewise, McGill's big, open bassoon sound is what I've always missed when hearing this work. I immediately fell in love with his rendition after hearing his rich tone and bouncy articulation.
Unfortunately, Mack's rendition of the oboe concerto barely deserves to be sandwiched between these glorious interpretations. I was sorely disappointed when I heard it: sloppy technique (as in "was that a grace note???") harsh tone (as in "maybe it's the reed...") slow tempi (allegro aperto means fast, right?) and uninspired interpretation (is he playing an etude or a concerto?).
But that's just one out of three. I'm still supremely happy I purchased the CD, even at full price: the Cohen and McGill performances are well worth the money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful playing by Franklin Cohen and David McGill 21 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This disc IS worth buying because of the wonderful playing of Mr. Cohen and Mr. McGill. Both of these artists perform Mozart with superb technical finesse and musical depth. However, I cannot give this recording 5 stars because of the surprisingly poor playing of Oboist John Mack. His tone is both harsh and dull, and his articulations are unclear. Musically, his playing is almost machine-like, with very little nuance and subtlety. It is only during his cadenzas that his playing approaches that of his colleagues. I know that this is a tough review, but it is only because I had expected a much better performance from this orchestra's principal oboist. I have heard the Cleveland Orchestra live on many occasions, and know the incredible playing that they all are capable of!

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent bassoon, overornamented clarinet 23 May 2013
By Kirk List - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Decca may have included only these oboe and bassonn concerti in their Double Decca complete wind concerti because they preferred the de Peyer/Maag clarinet concerto for it. It is a trifle more romantic than the Marcellus/Szell version, and Dohnanyi/Cleveland are flawless in all three concerti. Cohen phrases well and his tone is attractive. However, Like Charles Neidich with the Orpheus CO/DG, Cohen
ornaments excessively in my view. I find it unnecessary and intrusive, and would rather hear DePeyer/Maag, Marcellus/Szell, or the bass clarinet version with Thea King and Jeffrey Tate.

McGill's bassoon concerto remains delightful. He employs a plummy tone and plays mellifluously, a bit like Klaus Thunemann. I would to hear him play the bassoon-cello sonata k292 also. John Mack was the principle Cleveland oboist
for many years. He phrases well, but ornaments a bit too much, I think. I was addicted to Lothar Koch's plummy tone and also liked the Holliger version. Dohnanyi accompanies very well as usual. I wish that he had recorded more Mozart, but he did record the final six symphonies including the Linz and Prague symphonies that Szell did not. (see my review). The Double Decca wind concerti set remains five star worthy with the possible exception of Mack's oboe concerto. And if the ornaments are annoying here, add a fourth star.

5.0 out of 5 stars The crarinet concerto---WOW. I love this cd. 16 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com

This is a wonderful album. All three soloists are excellent and Franklin Cohen is one of the all time great clarinet virtuosos. The Cleveland orchestra is perfect...as ususal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Three Wind Concertos; all first rate performamnces 17 Jan 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
These are three wonderfully played concertos by the first chair players of the Cleveland Orchestra. Szell, years ago, recorded the Clarinet concerto with his principal, Robert Marcellus. Here is another fine Cleveland performance that exceeds. Frank Cohen gives a splendid account of this late concerto. He is right on the mark regarding tempo, expression, and accent with a beautiful smooth tone. Nice little flourishes abound, yet Cohen plays as one strand among the whole orchestra. John Mack has been an oboe player with Cleveland since the glory days of Szell. Mack's playing is soft and natural with equally nice embellishments throughout. Why London took so long to bring this recording to the market exceeds my grasp.
