Although the Flute Concerto in G we heard earlier this morning may bear the title “concerto” it is not for a solo instrument and orchestra, but for an instrumental ensemble. The man who wrote it lived to be 86 years of age.  His long life covered the careers of Bach and Handel, and stretched down to the years when Haydn composed forty of his symphonies. Who is this prolific composer of the Baroque era?
