Duo Concertante op. 100, No. 2
Briccialdi, G

International Music Company presents Briccialdi's 'Duo Concertante Op. 100, No. 2' for two flutes edited by John Wummer.

Giulio Briccialdi was born in Terni, Italy. He began his studies the flute with his father to continue in Rome. He soon began a career as a professional of the highest level, obtaining prestigious engagements such the appointment as flute professor of the Count of Syracuse, brother of the King of Naples, Ferdinand of Bourbon. It was Briccialdi who developed the B-flat thumb mechanism for the left hand thumb to play B-flat in cases where it is technically inconvenient to use the conventional right-hand-index-finger fingering. As a convinced advocate of the unification of Italy, he was personally involved in several fund raising concerts to subsidize General Giuseppe Garibaldi. In 1871 he became flute Professor at the Florence Conservatory, where the flute model invented by him was adopted. As a composer, he devoted himself mainly to the composition of paraphrases and variations on operatic themes, this being the most popular genre for the public and the most suitable to achieve fame and success. The concept of Paraphrase or Air with variations, along with the taste for famous operatic themes and for pure virtuosity, captivated an entire generation of performers throughout Europe and in Italy.
