About

Two seldom heard Romantic Flute Concertos by Dupuy and Buchner.

Edouard Dupuy (1770‐1822) was a precocious musical talent, violinist, flautist and singer (he sang the Danish premiere of Don Giovanni!). A flamboyant romantic and womaniser, his adventures led him to various European countries, finally settling in Sweden.

Ferdinand Büchner (1825‐ 1912) began his career as a flautist in various German orchestras. His talent was recognised by Anton Rubinstein, who appointed him as first Flute Professor in his newly founded Music Conservatory in Moscow. His Flute Concerto in F minor is a grand scale romantic work of symphonic proportions, demanding a high level of virtuosity of the soloist, especially in the substantial Cadenza in the third movement.

These are beautiful performances by Ginevra Petrucci, who has already recorded the Flute Quintets by Kuhlau (5 star reviews in France and Italy) for Brilliant Classics, accompanied by the Orchestra I Pomeriggi Musicali - one of the oldest (founded in 1945) and most respected chamber orchestras of Italy.
