Corrigliano's Clarinet Concerto. Commissioned in 1977 I think for & recorded by Drucker. Amazing technique.

I find Esenvalds's 'Visions of Arctic: Night', a kind of clarinet concerto, to be very moving. Also votes from me too for Vaughan Williams's oboe and tuba concertos and for Rautavaara's Flute Concerto:
"Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm" (Churchill).

'The test of a work of art is, in the end, our affection for it, not our ability to explain why it is good' (Stanley Kubrick).

Horn Concerto by GLIÈRE - sounds like he was in a happy mood when he wrote it.
Saxophone Concertos by Malcolm ARNOLD and GLAZOUNOV
a harmonica concerto by VILLA-LOBOS coming soon on Naxos, also one by Malcolm ARNOLD, and a Romance by VAUGHAN WILLIAMS 
English horn (or cor Anglais, if you prefer)- the usual concert piece is the Concertino by DONIZETTI

Oh, I have been through Besses O’ Th’ Barn on the Manchester to Bury tram. I didn’t realise there was anything there.

Interesting work but awful recording (recorded 1982 sound like 1950)

Woodwind Concertos
« Reply #49 on: May 08, 2020, 04:41:52 AM »
Here I post my playlist of Woodwind Concertos. Actually it is contents of my six playlists, combined, ordered by composer and all movements entries are combined in just concerto name. Major keys are marked by single big letter at end (with flat if needed). No performer names (yes, it is sad point). 190 concertos and 57 hours (56:52:35). I'd listened to them all many times. While collecting (~2 years ago) this playlist many times was considerably reconstructed (some concertos were deleted as not suitable for me and some concertos were added). This playlist version is stable for year or so. Yes, some significant names (Vivaldi, Krommer, Hoffmeister, others) and notable consertos (e.g. Francais) are omitted; initially they all were in my playlists but by listening to them many times I noted that I want to skip them. So it is just playlist of my personal tastes for this time. Anyway I hope it can be useful at least as starting point for beginner listener. I hope also that concertos from this list can be found in YouTube.

Martinů’s fantastic Oboe Concerto springs to mind immediately:

... and of course Nielsen's Clarinet Concerto, plus IMHO Saariaho's Flute Concerto, L'Aile du Songe, and maybe Copland's Clarinet Concerto.

I went back to page 1: "Diletante" disappeared in december 2008!

We seem to love concertos for wind instruments, however.
Here are a few more "leckerbissen" :

Ferrucio Busoni - Divertimento for Flute and Orchestra Op. 52 (1920)

Jean-Michel Damase, Sérenade pour Flûte et orchestre à cordes.
