Mozart wrote a concerto for oboe in C Major in 1777, and the following year he transcribed it to D Major for flute. A flutist and an oboist are both convinced that their instrument is superior, and they both want the spotlight. A narrator takes us back in time to set the stage for the competition to decide which instrument is best suited for the music. They compete for stardom while the lowly accompanist tries to settle the argument. Which one is better? Tensions rise. Who wins? You decide.
