It is not surprising that the Viennese flautist Joseph Wolfram performed the third movement of Wilms' Concerto, op. 24 on its own at concerts. This particular movement is extremely catchy, partly due to its brilliant orchestration. Wilms was justifiably dubbed 'the most original' of Beethoven's contemporaries. In 1815 the Allgemeine musikalische Zeitung described his concerto in the following terms: 'This is just as it should be for this instrument, not grandiose or pathetic, but quite brilliant, spirited and most agreeably written.' The orchestra parts can be hired from the publisher.
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
