Program Notes

Flute Concerto was written by composer Jacques Ibert in 1932. The concerto comprises three movements (Allegro, Andante, and Allegro scherzando), and was first performed in 1934 in Paris at the Société des Concerts du Conservatoire. The piece was dedicated to Marcel Moyse, and features flute as the soloist lead instrument, along with small orchestra.

- Program Note from Wikipedia


The transcriber, William Montgomery, reports that he created the transcription to perform as a new flute soloist with the United States Marine Band in the mid-1950s.
