Program Notes

This concerto was dedicated to the memory of the music publisher Walter Hinrichsen. It was the first of 20 wind symphony compositions by Henk Badings to be commissioned by Robert Boudreau and the American Wind Symphony Orchestra of Pittsburgh. According to Badings' widow, Hetty, this challenging concerto is one of her husband's most widely performed wind works in the U.S. Jean-Pierre Rampal and John Pellerite are among the famous flutists who include the work in their repertoire.
