Flute Concerto (Haydn); Bullfinch Concert (Vivaldi); Flute Concerto (Frederick “The Great”) (Flute and Piano)
These three works for flute & orchestra remain at the top of the flute repertoire. Haydn's Divertimento is a wonderful four-movement piece including a lovely 'Menuetto'; Vivaldi's 'Il Gardellino' or 'Bullfinch' Concerto is one of the great compositions for flute & orchestra and an all-time favorite; and King Frederick II of Prussia's famous Concerto in C major shows again that a king can be more than just statesman! Includes a high-quality printed music score and a compact disc containing a complete performance of the concerto in split-channel stereo, with the soloist on the right channel; and a second performance in full stereo minus the soloist.
