Mercadante: Flute Concertos Nos. 1, 2, 4



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Saverio Mercadante was one of Italy's ground-breaking composers in the development of opera, admired by contemporaries such as Rossini, Donizetti, Bellini and Verdi. But during the years 1814 to 1820, inspired by fellow conservatoire students and their virtuoso teachers, he embarked on a series of works for the flute. They include seven concertos, happy exceptions to the rule in opera-obsessed Italy of the day. The solo writing is vividly characterised, full of technical demands perfectly adapted to the instrument's then more limited capabilities and permeated with a rich bel canto lyricism.
