Piano score and flute part
Published by Samfundet
Composed for the Danish flautist Holger Gilber-Jespersen during an Italian sojourn in 1926, this widely performed concerto had its world premiere in Paris on October 21, 1926. In early January 1927, following the first two performances in Paris and Oslo, Nielsen wrote a new 72 bars longer ending. This became the standard ending ever since the January 25th, 1927, performance. This edition was by Emil Telmanyi, Nielsen’s son-in-law, and conductor of the Paris world premiere.
I. Allegro moderato
