Recommended for the following exam grade(s):
Gluck's Concerto in G major is an old favourite, but still one of the best. The writing has a simple texture but there is still plenty for a flute player to enjoy. You will need to be agile as the Allegro non molto leaps around, and have a sustained sound to carry the long phrases in the Adagio. The final Allegro comodo is a delightfully uncomplicated! This is one of the best flute concertos both to play and listen to - enjoy!
