Podcast: Robert Aitken plays Stamitz Flute Concertos

In 1742, Johann Stamitz got the job offer he wanted – he was invited to become a member of the Mannheim Court Orchestra. A couple of years later, he became Concertmaster, and then Director of Instrumental Music. That meant he had to compose as well as play. Because his patron loved the flute, and he had a really good player in his orchestra, he wrote a number of flute concertos. Four of them are presented on this disc and podcast, with Canadian flutist Robert Aitken, and the St. Christopher Chamber Orchestra conducted by Donatas Katkus.
