Concerto for Flute and Orchestra (Flute and Piano)
Published in 1934, the Concerto - MCMXXXIV is one of the most frequently interpreted Flute concertos ever written. Jacques Ibert (1890-1962), a neoclassical composer, won the Prix de Rome in 1919. Written for the French flautist Marcel Moyse, it is rated as difficult and is composed of three movements: Allegro, Andante and Allegro Scherzando.
Jacques Ibert (1890-1962) also composed many symphonic suites, operas and seven orchestras, including Angelique (1926) and Divertissement (1930). He also was in charge of the Accadémie de France in the Villa Médicis (Roma) and was later administrator for the Paris Opera.
