AllMusic Review by

Windham Hill's The Mozart Variations pays tribute to the great composer with new age reworkings of some of his best-loved pieces. Flute Force Inc.'s "The Bird Catcher's Song" (from The Magic Flute), the Turtle Island String Quartet's "Exsultate Jubilante," the L.A. Guitar Quartet's "4 Variations on Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star," and Benjamin Verdery's "Adagio" are some of the album's brightest moments, along with Michael Manning's "Allegretto" and Liz Story's "Menuett #6." DS2, William Coulter, John Lee Sanders, and Free Klassic also contribute interpretations to this charming, relaxing collection.
