Flutist Mathieu Dufour and oboist Alex Klein -- current and former principal players of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra -- shine as soloists in a CD of neglected gems from the early Romantic era. Charming virtuosic showpieces by Mendelssohn contemporaries Wilhelm Bernhard Molique and Ignaz Moscheles astound with their fresh melodies -- and with the jaw-dropping technique and expressive range they elicit from the wind soloists. Opening the program is a jewel of the high Classical period: Domenico Cimarosa's beloved Concerto for Two Flutes (played on flute and oboe).
