Flute Concerto in A minor
Approved Exam Music
Recommended for the following exam grade(s):
Blavet, who endowed French flute music with the mature and virtuoso character that enabled flautists to vie with the great French violinists of the period, such as Leclair and Anet, composed this concerto in about 1740. The first and last movements, in a purely Italian style, flank a couple of French Gavottes.
