Concerto for flute, harp, and orchestra in C Major ("Concertante alla harpa e flauto") KV299

1. Allegro

Performed by the Freiburger Barockorchester
Directed by Gottfried von der Goltz

*The Concerto for Harp, Flute and Orchestra in C major was written in April 1778 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart during his sojourn to Paris for the Court of Guines. It was commissioned (although never paid for) from Mozart, by the flautist Duke of Guînes, Adrien-Louis de Bonnières, and his harpist daughter who was taking composition lessons from the composer.

This concerto is the only piece of music that Mozart wrote that contains the harp. In the classical period, the harp was still in development, and was not considered a standard orchestral instrument and was regarded more as a plucked piano. Therefore, harp and flute was considered an extremely unusual combination.
