Concerto No 9 in E minor
This is a concerto by the painter, civil servant and wind player Robert Woodcock to represent the sort of music that would have been played in the intervals of eighteenth-century productions of Shakespeare plays. Like many concertos of the period written for the London theatres, it has no viola part and is written in a light Italianate style. Woodcock died in April 1728, and his XII Concertos in Eight Parts seem to have been published soon afterwards as a posthumous tribute to him. Thus the three flute concertos included in the collection seem to be the earliest published anywhere for the instrument.
