I need to clarify that my composer lived outside of Germany for part of his career (in various countries in Europe). Only actually lived in England for a few years.

I don't think there are any other German composers in the applicable timeframe. except maybe Eckard. but he wrote only for piano, I think.

Another hint:

Although this composer was "born" in Germany, he is Bohemian in descent.

Yes (I'm just not counting that as a question, since it's the same as asking if it's a flute concerto.)

Yes! 8) Unless there is more than 1 in G major, you got it.

It's the Concerto for Flute & Orchestra, Op. 29 in G major, composed around 1782/84, by Carl Stamitz.
