From an arranger’s point of view, I first thought of the three piano concertos K. 413, 414, and 415, because Mozart had stated that they can likewise be performed “a quattro”, with one solo string player for each part – in other words, as chamber music. If we regard the woodwind quintet as a legitimate counterpart to the string quartet, the choice would be perfectly justified. But since Markus wanted another concerto, we opted for a different approach. The woodwind orchestra parts in Mozart’s fantastic Concerto in G Major are originally scored for flute, 2 oboes, 2 bassoons, and 2 horns, thus offering an incredible variety of timbre hues. They contain a number of solos for flute, oboe, and bassoon, which I did my best to transcribe and include in my version for woodwind quintet and piano by applying an arranger’s device: the piano not only plays the solo parts, but sometimes assumes the orchestra string section’s accompaniment function (as, for instance, at the onset of the slow movement). The piano thus appears more frequently and is more present in the texture, and the result is true chamber music collaboration.
