Notes & Reviews:

Volume 1 of 3 of the complete Flute Concertos by François Devienne, one of the founding teachers at the Paris Conservatoire newly established in 1795.

MusicWeb International, February 2015
Flutist Patrick Gallois produces a tone that...is well-focused and well-tuned, avoiding the hard-edged sounds of the popular virtuosi of the recent past. He has the dexterity to make the scales, arpeggios, and other figurations sound easy, and the musicality and dash to make them sound purposeful: they're flashy without being insistent.

American Record Guide, November/December 2015
In the years just after Mozart was commissioned to write some "easy" flute concertos, Devienne was producing these hard ones. His first four were written in 1782, 1783, 1784, and some time in the late 1780s. Patrick Gallois plays these works on a modern instrument with a very stylish sound plus a large measure of gusto applied to all the difficulties. The Swedish Chamber Orchestra has 38 members and the sound here creates the spacious effect of a full orchestra. Devienne thins and thickens his scoring so that there is a great variety of texture, making these finely-wrought display pieces well worth hearing. Concerto 4 is among the best in Devienne's large output.
