The flute concertos presented in this recording constitute a central part of the flute repertory, having been composed between the second half of the 18th century and the first half of the 19th, thus sharing a classical form. Written in galant style, the concertos all share the singular characteristic of being in the key of G major, with the sole exception of Mercadante’s concerto, which is, however, composed in its relative minor key of E minor. Subdivided into three movements, they follow the traditional scheme of a denser first movement allegro, a more lyrical and melodic second movement, and a lively and technically brilliant third movement. The theme, having been introduced by the orchestra, is entrusted after a few bars to the flute protagonist. Continuing in the same tonality, the solo instrument begins to “play”, in a manner that emphasizes the player’s ability and generosity.
