Grand Duo Op.33 (Flute and Piano)
Grand Duo Op.33 (Flute and Piano) By Friedrich Kuhlau, Arranged by András Adorján, Published by Edition Svitzer (2013)
Friedrich Kuhlau’s (1768‐1832) Grand Duo, originally composed for violin and piano, is a masterpiece in his chamber music compositions. It soon became so popular, that within a short time after its composition it was arranged for the flute by the French flutist Paul Hippolyte Camus (1796-1869). When Kuhlau heard about Camus’ great interest in his music, he was so pleased, that he proposed to write a new flute sonata and dedicate it to him! A plan, which unfortunately never came to fruition. Duration: 21 minutes.
