Works for Flute by W. A. Mozart
In spite of the reputed disfavour Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) held towards the flute, he created remarkable and enduring music for this instrument that he openly expressed his dislike for. Among his notable compositions for the flute are two concertos, a double concerto featuring the harp, Andante in C, and four beautiful flute and string quartets.
These works were commissioned by Ferdinand Dejean, a Dutch physician and amateur musician, during Mozart’s visit to Mannheim in 1777/78. Mozart composed an alternative version, the ‘Andante’ KV 315 (285e), for the middle movement of the Concerto in G major KV 313, as it was deemed too challenging either in terms of playing technique or musical complexity for the client. Despite his reservations, Mozart’s flute compositions continue to captivate audiences with their timeless beauty and artistry.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Mozart was born in Salzburg in 1756 and was a hugely influential composer of the Classical era. He began composing music at the aged of 5 and was a child prodigy. He was also extremely competent on the keyboard and violin. Mozart composed over 600 works including symphonies, chamber works, operas, and keyboard works amongst a huge array of other works.
Mozart composed works for flute including a concerto for flute and harp, concerti in G Major and D Major, Andante in C and flute & string quartets.
Originally intended for the priesthood, he joined the choir at St. Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna at the age of eight, where he developed his skills in violin and keyboard. After leaving the choir, Haydn supported himself by teaching and performing violin while immersing himself in the study of counterpoint and harmony.
Through his association with Metastasio, Haydn gained access to the upper echelons of society. In 1761, he assumed the position of the head of the musical establishment at the esteemed Esterházy family’s grand palace, where he would find support for the majority of his career.
Often regarded as the pioneer of the symphony, Haydn composed 106 symphonies, including the renowned final 12 known as the “London symphonies” (1791–95). He also played a pivotal role in the development of the string quartet, with his 68 quartets remaining foundational in the genre. Additionally, he contributed 14 masses and the oratorios The Creation (1798) and The Seasons (1801) to the choral repertoire. Haydn’s compositional output further encompassed 47 piano sonatas and over 125 beautiful compositions for the baryton, an instrument similar to the cello.
