The Flute Concerto was composed for flutist Alexa Still (Principal flute, NZSO) in 1993 while Ritchie was Composer-in-Residence with the Dunedin Sinfonia (now Southern Sinfonia). Unlike the Symphony "Boum" , written in the same year, this concerto is a generally happy and open-sounding work, and reflects aspects of Alexa Still's personality as well as her playing. She first performed the concerto on September 4th, 1993 in The Glenroy Auditorium, and subsequently recorded it with The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra.
Note: The collection "Little Dancings: a selection of flute music by New Zealand composers" includes Movement II only.
