Saverio Mercadante: Concerto for Two Flutes; Flute Concerto No. 6; 20 Capricci

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Although operas make up the most substantial part of Mercadante's catalogue, his technically challenging flute concertos are notable examples of 19th-century Italian instrumental music, effectively closing the Classical period for this instrument. Built on the agile writing and bel canto style that characterised the Neapolitan school, the Concerto in D major is unique in Mercadante's catalogue in being for two flutes. The great mutual respect between Mercadante and Rossini is brought vividly to life in the theme used for the masterly Tema con variazioni. The Capricci can be compared with those for violin by Paganini, and the joyous Sixth Concerto makes varied and eloquent use of the orchestra. Volume 1 of this collection can be heard on Naxos 8.572731.
