Concerto Symphonique for Flute and Piano

“A substantial work-out!”
This is a Concerto Symphonique so it's a substantial work and the rather obscure Belgian composer Hendrik Waelputs certainly shows here that he knew how to write for the flute. The solo part is both a technical and musical challenge as well as one of power and stamina. It's just so expressive, drawing the listener into the sweeping lines and dazzling with cascades of notes. This a lovely work full of Romantic colour which is both great to play and to hear!
