Haydn - Flute Concerto

Joesph Haydn, can be, pardon the pun, a somewhat Surprise Composer. Just when you write him off after listening to another dull rendition of Symphony No 54, or an uninspired Symphony No 72, you say to yourself, man, this guy's dull, doesn't he know more than two triadic chords, or horns that play du-du-du? Then you hear one of his masterly string quartet movements, and you know he earnt his reputation for the best of his music, not the most ordinary.

Today's video pick proclaims itself as Haydn's Flute Concerto in D major. This is rather confusing as - one, there is no flute, two, there is no orchestra.

Work it out for yourself, here.
