Robert Stallman, flutist

Jill interviews virtuoso flutist Robert Stallman who has just issued a new album of his transcriptions of the four-hand Piano Sonatas of Mozart as Quintets for flute, viola and string quartet. An amazing realization puts these works in a new light and underscores the possible ideas that Mozart had when writing these works for four hands. The transformation of these works is enlightening and delightful, and Mr. Stallman's enthusiasm and love of the music comes through in the transcriptions and the superb performances. Mozart would agree, we think.
