Win

Mozart's operas in the distinctive sound of the Trio d'Anches - the Trio Roseau has been extremely successful in expanding the repertoire of chamber music for winds. Episode three takes on Don Giovanni, whose darker sides are somewhat relegated to the background in favour of the "dramma giocoso". Much to the advantage of the slender instrumentation with oboe, clarinet and bassoon, which in Ulf-Guido Schäfer's arrangement finds a wonderfully serenade-like tone.

 

Finesse

Of course, the great arias are to be found in Schäfer's entertaining arrangement, in which the three instruments cheerfully compete for the leading role. In this way, the restriction to three voices is transformed into a lively collaboration that shows off the fabulous virtuosity of the three players to their best advantage.

Vitality

And there is also something new to discover: Schäfer has arranged three of Mozart's concert arias for oboe and string trio. The famous oboe quartet served as a model. Virtuosic in the fast parts, generously cantabile in the wide vocal arches: Rachel Frost on oboe and English horn does not miss Mozart's singer friends at any moment.

Moment

Mozart wrote two arias from "La Clemenza di Tito" with an obbligato clarinet part for Anton Stadler. Of course Schäfer, who plays the clarinet in the Roseau Trio, would not miss this opportunity to perform with his musical friends. And he intervenes in the voice leading with a twinkle in his eye - Mozart must have liked it very much.

„Das Trio Roseau harmoniert schlicht fantastisch. Es serviert den lustvollen Mozart-Esprit mit geschmackvoll dosiertem virtuosen Feuer“
