VIVALDI: Flute Concerto in G minor RV439, La Notte

From Music Alive, 8:00 pm on 8 June 2019

There's a sense of the supernatural about La Notte - The Night.

It's the second of six flute concertos by Venetian composer Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741) from his Opus 10. The key is G minor and there are several short movements.

NZSO principal flute player Bridget Douglas takes on what she considers a a technically challenging but rewarding workout.
