Unavailable - sorry!
If you need a concerto for a small string orchestra and continuo with an attractive solo part then this is for you. It is pretty and not too easy for the soloist! Lots of triplets and semiquavers with some lovely thematic material...

A welcome new arrival to the flute repertoire...The six concertos in Op.6 were apparently unpublished during Abel's lifetime, and it is thanks to the efforts of flautist Edward Beckett that we now have this beautiful printed edition... a special mention must be given to the slow movement of the fourth concerto in C: it is breathtakingly beautiful. The excellent piano reduction is by internationally-acclaimed harpsichordist Robert Aldwinckle. Highly recommended for the grade 8-plus performer.
