Description: Danzi's first two flute concertos (1805) sound even better on period instruments, the minor key Op. 31 sounding like it belongs with the best of its kind. Even if you have the 32-year-old Orfeo disc, you may want to consider these. World Premiere Recordings of the overtures: two short ones from 1812 and 1780 and Wilhelm Tell, a three-movement "Italian overture" type, from 1815. Annie Laflamme (flute), Orchester le Phénix.
