Flute Concerto in D major

This little known D major Concerto by Joseph Haydn which has also been attributed to Leopold Hoffman is a great alternative to Mozart. Starting with a lovely Allegro moderato, this will challenge your low note projection and articulation. The beautiful Adagio has the flute melody floating above the orchestra and the closing Allegro molto alternates semiquavers and triplets to great affect. The accessability of the string parts make it an ideal choice for playing with the school orchestra and the flute writing is lovely rather than difficult - whoever wrote it!
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
