    Amancio Jacinto Alcorta (1805-1862) was an Argentine composer, policy maker and politician. This new edition of his "Gran Fantasia" is edited by Paula Gudmundson. Alcorta’s compositions for flute are not dated but they were among the first compositions for chamber ensemble that he wrote. From the works published in 1869, only the compositions for flute and piano follow European forms used during the Romantic period. The "Gran Fantasía" is a theme and variations structure with an introduction and a final vivace section in addition to the main theme and three variations. It includes simple melodies but the texture is more complex and full. The decision to write a technical challenge for the flute may have been due to the visits of many flute virtuosos during this period such as Cambeses and Reichert. Duration approximately 8.5 minutes.
