Fantaisie sur des airs écossais, Op. 25 (Flute and Piano)
Fantaisie sur des airs écossais, Op. 25 (Flute and Piano) By Theobald Boehm, Published By Schott.
Inventor of the modern flute, Böhm was one of the great flute players of his generation and often wrote virtuoso pieces and arrangements to show off his skill and his new flute. The Fantaisie is a theme and variation on Scottish folk dances for the advanced flute player. “There are some demanding passages in this piece, requiring excellent technical control, and playing through it, one is reminded of the impressive dexterity of Böhm, who will almost certainly have performed this work himself on his newly designed key mechanism. The edition is clear and well laid out, with well-planned page turns and an interesting preface giving some background information on the piece.”--The Flutist Quarterly
