Audio sample


A near contemporary and rival of Haydn, Leopold Hofmann was held in the highest regard in his native Vienna where he served as Kapellmeister at St Stephen’s Cathedral, a position to which Mozart might have succeeded had he lived. Hofmann was a prolific composer of instrumental music and his solo concertos, of which there are nearly sixty for various instruments, are among the finest written in Vienna during the mid-18th century. Like all of Hofmann’s flute concertos the present work is distinguished by its wonderfully idiomatic writing for the solo instrument and its sensitive handling of musical textures.
