    Default Flute Concertos Bonanza

    A fun little poll, well, at least I'd like to think that it is! Which ones are you familiar with, like or dislike? :} Vote for as many as you'd like, or even include any flute concertos that I have forgotten to cover in the poll!

    There are several nice and more recent flute concertos that might be mentioned. Two I like are Christopher Rouse's concerto and Christian (not Magnus) Lindberg's concerto titled "The World of Montuagretta." The latter is probably the best flute concerto ever written by a traveling virtuoso trombonist!

    You have some interesting picks there. I've played a couple on the list, but I've also played much more than is on the list and which I would recommend on equal to whatever you put there. I may try out the Telemann and Blavet concertos. Vivaldi wrote some really great flute concertos, little ditties as they often were, but really great, like the Gardelino Concerto which I'm sorry to see not listed. I also see you didn't include the Oboe transcription to D major, i.e. Flute concerto no. 2 by Mozart. That is generally accepted as a "real" concerto in its own right because it is after all transposed and Mozart did it himself. Also, no flute and harp concerto?

    Enough of my complaining lol

    That really ought to be a poll all on its own, cuz there really are so many. Flute got really prolific in the 20th-21st century!

    I own a lot of them. Have always had an affinity for Blavet´s little work, which Rampal promoted.

    My overall favourite is Saariaho´s concerto. Benda´s are good too.

    @Huilunsoittaja You are absolutely right, there were some glaring omissions on my part, sorry The flute concerto repertoire no doubt is filled with any array of wonderful concertos, as Ken alluded to some recent ones, that I have yet to familiarize myself with. Perhaps this poll will change that. :}

    The concertos by Nielsen, Saariaho and Ibert are favorites. I also like this one by Sciarrino:

    I'm not familiar with any of those, but I do like Mozart's Concerto for Harp and Flute (K. 299) and Cecile Chaminade's Concertino for Flute (op 107) - delightful from start to finish.

    Have you heard Ned Rorem's flute concerto?

    There's the charming though obscure Suite "Springtime" by Sergei Vasilenko. It is truly a delicious work (as is his Balalaika Concerto).

    Then there's Khachaturian's (flute concerto version of his Violin Concerto, op. 46b) which is fairly well recorded.
