François Devienne performed as an orchestral bassoonist and flautist but rose to fame as an operatic composer. His greatest achievement, however, lies in his sequence of Flute Concertos, of which this is the final volume. Despite his failing health, the four works on this recording demonstrate the hallmark combination of melodic elegance and graceful virtuosity that characterises Devienne’s flute concertos, and are among the most attractive of their time. Concerto No.10 is one of his masterpieces, distinguished equally by the beauty of its thematic material and its confident, cohesive musical structure.
