Leopold should have included 'Aeolus' in Wolfgang's lengthy nomenclature: was there ever a time when he was not a master of winds? It must have been engrained into his DNA.

The works contained on this disc, insofar as they were penned by his hand, firmly place Mozart as an Eighteenth Century composer. They are akin to figurines of Dresden China - with depth. Consider the adagio of K 186: it would do any composer proud, let alone a sixteen year old stripling. The sustained note towards its conclusion is a declaration to the world, Eroica-wise, that a great composer is at hand. This is no overstatement: it is just as declamatory as K 165 Exultate Jubilate or the first piano concerto, K 175. Ecce homo.

Of the four works, only K 186 & K 166 are authenticated. While K. Anh. 226 & 227 have Mozartian touches, their attribution is far from secure. The first two works also offer an opportunity to hear Mozart use English Horns which are exceedingly rare in his corpus of works.

This performance was recorded by the leading wind-soloists of the Berlin Philharmonic in June 1983 at the height of their dispute with Karajan. Perhaps this recital - and the others - were a declaration of independence. No matter: these works have been ill-served by discography and this disc is a great way of adding them to your collection. Most Orfeo recordings are a little bit woolly sound-wise and this is no exception. Even so, the performances and the music itself carry the day into the night.
