As we have seen, two out of three new discoveries are not new for us: the first one is Wendling Flute Concerto GUN 20 and the third one is an arrangement by G. C. Menzel for two flutes and orchestra of Sonata for two pianos KV 448 (I couldn’t find Menzel’s first name). In the concert schedule this arrangement is mistakenly listed as KV 448a just in order to put it next to the original Sonata, but in the sixth edition of the Köchel catalogue that number belongs to the Six minuets (previously KV 461). In the following video you can listen to some fragments but there isn’t a complete recording, although it will be available in CD.
The second discovery is the most interesting one, i.e. the Flute concerto in D KV deest. Allegedly it was composed by Mozart in Salzburg in July 1777 and was reconstructed by the fortepianist Anders Muskens. Firstly, if it’s really possibile to identify so accurately its date of composition and the work is actually of Mozart’s, we can leave out the ‘deest’ and replace it with another gorgeous number near KV 290. Secondly, let’s see the details provided in the video description and then some insolent questions about them:
