"The soloist in the Concerto for Flute and Orchestra in G Major by W. A. Mozart was the Austrian flutist Ulrike Anton. The soloist let the music sound with impressive elegance and played with expressive tension as well as subtle calmness in the slow movement. All technical passages were mastered with brilliance and surprising lightness..."
