Tune of the Day: Andante non troppo moderato
from Flute Concerto in G by Carl Stamitz
The delightful Flute Concerto in G, Op. 29, was composed by Czech-German composer Karl Philipp Stamitz, now better known as Carl. It is similar in style to other better-known works by Mozart or Haydn, but with some more unexpected turns of form.
This second movement, marked “Andante non troppo moderato”, features a beautiful singing melody in the flute, accompanied by beautifully light pizzicato figures from the orchestra.
Thanks to Micron for requesting this piece!
