Bruno Meier (flute)
Jaroslav Tuma (harpsichord)*
Prague Chamber Orchestra, (Antonín Hradil, leader)

These four flute concertos, here recorded for the first time, span the fascinating half century that saw the emergence of Romanticism from the Classical style of the preceding decades.

Each requires different forces, reflecting the growth of the orchestra during this time, while giving a prominence to the solo instrument which would decline as the 19th Century progressed. They are, therefore, rare treasures to enjoy for their diversity and unique position in musical history.

The performance material for this recording was specially prepared from original sources by acclaimed soloist Bruno Meier, who plays a 14-carat gold flute.

These are highly melodic, engaging works with no competition on recordings.

“Bruno Meier is poised and fluent… as are the Prague Chamber musicians. Finales in particular display strong vertical clarity and well-judged accenting.”
Fanfare on a previous Rosetti recording
