Mozart's Flute Concerto K. 314 (285d) was most likely derived from the Oboe Concerto K. 314 (271k). The decisive impulse for the arrangement was presumably provided by a commission from the Dutch flutist Ferdinand Dejean in 1778.

Any new edition inevitably has to take a very cautious approach, as the source transmission is thin: only copies dating from the 1790s have survived for both versions, and these copies clearly differ from one another. Moreover, it is nowhere confirmed that Mozart actually prepared the flute version himself.

Henrik Wiese has worked intensively with Mozart's flute compositions as an interpreter and musicologist, and now presents following his new edition of the Concerto K. 313 the second solo concerto in an Urtext edition. He has once again supplied his own cadenzas.
