Concerto for Flute, Strings and Cembalo in D Major

By Schwindel Friedrich

F. Schwindel: Concerto for Flute, Strings and Cembalo in D Major most likely was written in the late 1770s when Schwindel worked in his newly founded music school in Geneva. It was discovered only in the late 1950s and the first modern performance took place in 1959 during radio broadcast by Raymond Meylan and the Lausanne Chamber Orchestra under direction of Jean-Marie Auberson. This a Mozartean style composition is considered rather adventuresome for the period containing a contrasting section in a minor key in the first and the third movements.

Schwindel Friedrich

Friedrich Schwindel (1737-1786) was a Dutch composer and a violin, piano and flute virtuoso. Most of his career he served at the courts of Count Carl von Colloredo-Mannsfeld in Brussels and the Wilhelm V in the Hague. In 1776 he moved to Geneva to establish a music school. However, in 1780 he accepted a concertmaster position of the Badische Hofkapelle in Karlsruhe which became the last appointment in his career.
He was a rather popular composer in his time who wrote 34 symphonies as well as numerous chamber music works and flute concertos.
