Concerto for Flute and Orchestra

Concerto for Flute and Orchestra

By Nielsen Carl

C. Nielsen: Concerto for Flute and Orchestra was written in 1926 and dedicated to flutist Holger Gilbert-Jespersen who premiered it in Paris the same year with Maurice Ravel and Arthur Honegger in the audience. The Concerto was inspired by Copenhagen Wind Quintet performance of Mozart in 1921. Inspired by Quintet’s performance Nielsen promised to write five instrumental concertos – one for each member of the Quintet. However, he was able to compose only two: for flute and clarinet (1928).

Nielsen Carl

Carl Nielsen (1865-1931) was a Danish composer, violinist and conductor. Now regarded as the most prominent Danish composer, Nielsen started his musical career as a second violinist in the Royal Danish Orchestra where he held that position for 16 years. Later he took a teaching position at the Royal Danish Academy.

His musical style initially was inspired by Brahms and Grieg, yet he developed his own style which could be called as progressive tonality. During his lifetime Nielsen was considered as a musical outsider and his music became rather popular only in 1960s.
