Howard Blake's Concerto for Flute and String Orchestra (1995).
Published by Faber Music.

'I played the flute at school and always held a special affinity for the instrument, often composing prominent solos for it within the context of my orchestral music, but never completing a concerto. The flautist Gay Byam-Grounds had been the soloist and leader of the English Serenata who had formed the ensemble which helped me develop the full-length stage show of 'The Snowman' from 1993 onwards. In 1996 as an enthusiastic performer of my music she summoned up the courage to commission a concerto and I accepted. As often with my music the main theme had been in my mind for some years and I now committed it to paper.'

~ Howard Blake
