Andante for flute and orchestra in G Major

By Molique Wilhelm Bernhard

B. Molique: Andante for flute in D Major from his flute concerto (Op 69) was published separately as concert piece in 1860s as part of interest from Danish flutist Oluf Svedsen who was a member of Queen Victoria's private band at Windsor while Molique was teaching composition and violin at the London Academy of Music at that time.

Molique Wilhelm Bernhard

Bernard Molique (1802-1869) was a German violinist, pianist and self-taught composer. His compositions were mostly influenced by his violin teacher Louis Spohr, W.A.Mozart, L.V.Beethoven and F. Mendelssohn. Even though he was well-regarded violinist (court violinist in Munich, music director at Stuttgart) he often performed his piano concertos as a soloist. After successful tour to London, he later moved to England where he taught composition at the London Academy till 1866.
His most well-known compositions: violin concerto in A minor, piano trio and oratorio Abraham. Although B. Molique was exposed to trend of the New German School (Neudeutschen Schule) in music, Molique's works were never really influenced by it.
