Romberg B.H. Concerto For Flute & Orchestra (J. Wion)
Winner 1994 NFA Newly Published Music Competition.
"This is not only a 'must-have', but also a 'why haven't we heard of this before' piece of music. Romberg's Concerto is wonderful fun and fills the large gap in flute concertos from the Beethoven era. This edition is clear, well-edited and well-transcribed for flute and piano. Highly recommended." Robert Bigio, Pan (Journal of the British Flute Society)
"This wonderful discovery nicely fills that missing gap in the flute literature between Mozart and Reinecke. The score of this fine work was never published, but, working from a set of parts, John Wion .. has painstakingly labored to bring us a modern edition with piano accompaniment of this long lost treasure from the 19th Century. Romberg was a well-known composer in his time, concertizing with Beethoven, playing with the Elector's orchestra in Bonn, and eventually serving as Kapplemeister to the King of Prussia in Berlin (Quantz and C.P.E. Bach had preceded him).
