Franz Joseph Rosinack was the first oboist of the Fürstenberg Orchestra to arrange the masterpieces of his time for reuse in his brilliant solo appearances. A certain chutzpah on his part is seen in the fact that he even dared to take on Joseph Haydn's string quartets - the result makes for highly rewarding listening.
Gernot Schmalfuß and the Consortium Classicum present two of Rosinack's oboe quartets in fascinating juxtaposition with Mozart's original masterpiece for the same instrumentation on the re-release of a production sold out for many years.
The musicians of the Consortium Classicum have captured the carefree tone making for a successful serenade like hardly any other ensemble. The broad cantilenas are in the best company with Gernot Schmalfuß, and this Consortium solo member of many years presents top-class chamber wind culture supported by three string instrumentalists.
This is fine entertainment on the highest level!
