Evening Masterwork: Mozart’s Flute Concerto No. 1

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)

Flute Concerto No. 1 in G by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Evening Masterwork for October 5, 2020 – 7:00 PM on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9 FM

It’s often thought that Mozart actually didn’t care much for the flute, and it stems from a line in a letter that he wrote his father where he actually refers to it as an instrument he could not bear. Still, one sign of a great composer is that he or she can write great music for instruments they don’t even like… which is the case with Mozart’s Flute Concerto No. 1. It’s our Evening Masterwork tonight at 7 on Classical WSMR 89. 1 and 103.9.
