Mozart – Flute Concerto No. 1 (Hallfríður Ólafsdóttir)

Accompanied by the Iceland Symphony Orchestra, Hallfríður Ólafsdóttir, the Principal Flute of the orchestra, performs Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Flute Concerto No. 1 in G major (K. 313). Conductor: Leo Hussain. Recorded during a concert in Harpa, Reykjavik, March 20th 2014. Published by the Iceland Symphony Orchestra channel.

The Flute Concerto No. 1 in G major (K. 313) was written in 1778 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Commissioned by the Dutch flautist Ferdinand De Jean in 1777, Mozart was supposed to provide four flute quartets and three flute concerti, yet he only completed three of the four quartets and two of the three concertos, this concerto, K. 313 being the first. The Andante for Flute and Orchestra K. 315 may have been written as an alternative slow movement for this concerto.

The three movements are:

  1. Allegro maestoso
  2. Adagio ma non troppo
  3. Rondo: Tempo di Menuetto
