Carol Lockhart, New West Symphony flautist, shares about her favorite instrument, the flute, and Team Winds fires back today with a spectacular showpiece for the flute: Carl Nielsen’s Flute Concerto.

In 1926, Nielsen’s Flute Concerto premiered, and one prominent critic said, “It has piquancy, drive and does not lack humour.” Let’s see a brass or percussion instrument try to match the nimble and subtle quality of the flute! There’s a reason it takes front and center before the orchestra!

Listen to Nielsen’s Flute Concerto and then join us for the Battle of the Sections: Orchestra Edition on June 25!
