About

A wonderful selection of concertos and other works featuring the flute from the 18th and 19th centuries, this box showcases 14 composers who championed the flute, each in their own way, with refined and idiomatic music for the instrument. Vivaldi and Alessandro Scarlatti (father in the musical Scarlatti family) were active during the 1720s, an era of transition from the end‐blown recorder to the more powerful and easily tuned side‐blown transverse flute common today. The works in this set by Scarlatti include concertos for both, while the modern flute is the star of the remaining music, from Vivaldi’s complete Op.10 concertos through to the fine F minor Concerto by Büchner, a 19th‐century German composer active in Russia.

C.P.E Bach, Benda and Quantz all served in the court of Frederick the Great – a gifted amateur flute player who demanded works for his instrument from the musicians in his employ – and this accounts for the great contribution these three composers made to the repertoire. From later in the 18th century we have the inventive and idiomatic flute music of Mozart, along with that of several of his contemporaries, Germans Danzi and Hoffmeister, the Bohemian Rosetti, and the Frenchman Devienne, whose worthy music was thankfully revived in the 1960s by Jean‐Pierre Rampal. Joining Büchner in the 19th century are the Italian Mercadante and Swiss-born Du Puy who was active in Scandinavia. Both noted opera composers, their sense for breath and melodic line no doubt informed their fine flute music.

Soloists of international calibre and renown perform with equally noteworthy ensembles in recordings spanning four decades: from Patrick Gallois’s recent outings in Sweden (Devienne) and Finland (Mercadante) and Ginevra Petrucci’s renditions of Du Puy and Büchner with Milan’s acclaimed Pomeriggi Musicali to timeless interpretations from Johannes Walter and the Staatskapelle Dresden (Mozart), Machiko Takahashi with the Concertgebouw Chamber Orchestra, and Hungarian virtuosos András Adorján (Benda, Danzi) and János Szebenyi (Hoffmeister, Rosetti).

Authentic performance is also represented in this 12-CD set, with Mario Folena joining Vivaldi specialists Federico Guglielmo and L’Arte dell’Arco, and Federico Maria Sardelli and Ugo Galasso soloing on both flute and recorder with Modo Antiquo – all on period instruments. Iceland’s Nordic Affect period ensemble features Georgia Browne in flute music by Abel, who wrote his chamber works for his pioneering London subscription concerts, organised with his friend J.C. Bach.

Another special feature in this treasure box of flute gems is Mary Oleskiewicz’s world premiere recording on Baroque transverse flute of four concertos by Quantz, a composer synonymous with the flute for his important contributions to the instrument’s pedagogy, technology and repertoire.

Recorded between 1975 and 2014
