Concerto for flute No 8 in G Major for flute and orchestra

By Devienne François

F. Devienne flute concerto No 8 in G Major was published most likely in 1794, shortly before he was appointed professor position in the Paris Conservatoire in 1795. Devienne's flute concerto No 8 is considered as one of the most developed concertos. The flute part contains the highest possible note a''' which was used very rare for the flute at that time.

Devienne François

François Devienne (1759-1803) was a French composer, bassoonist and flutist who during his lifetime became known as the "Mozart of the Flute". In 1974 Devienne published his method for the one-keyed flute which helped him to secure his professor position at the Paris Conservatoire in 1795. Devienne wrote mostly for wind instruments, including dozen flute concertos.
