Hoffmeister Flute Concerto in G major-Flute and Piano-IMC
Hoffmeister Flute Concerto in G major-Flute and Piano-IMC German composer, Franz Anton Hoffmeister (1757-1812) began studying law in Vienna. Following his studies, however, he went into a career in music. He later became one of the city’s most popular composers. He composed a vast array of music including eight operas, over 50 symphonies, numerous concertos, string chamber music, piano music and several songs. Hoffmesiter also wrote more than 25 concertos for flute as well as chamber works with the flute in a leading role.
Jean-Pierre Rampal (1922-2000) renowned French flautist toured internationally, recorded a vast array of works involving the flute and in later years, took up conducting.
Rampal won a place to study at the Paris Conservatoire and later founded the French Wind Quintet before becoming Principal Flute of the Paris Opéra (1956–62). In 1968 he took up the post of Flute Professor at the Paris Conservatoire.
He enhanced the status of the flute as a concert instrument through his vast number of recordings from Baroque masterpieces to jazz. He was particularly known for his authentic interpretations of 18th Century music and for his editing skills with the music of the Baroque period.
Rampal’s autobiography, ‘Music, My Love’, was published in 1989.
