Bio about Gluck

Flute Concerto in G by Christoph Gluck is bright and cheerful, with strong melodic writing in the solo part. There are cadenzas in each of the three movements. The origins of this concerto are not entirely clear. It may have been written while Gluck was still a student, or possibly even written by another composer and incorrectly misattributed to Gluck.
