Sonata "Undine" Opus 167 (Flute and Piano)


Composer: Reinecke, Carl
Sonata "Undine" Opus 167 (Flute and Piano) by Carl Reinecke, Published By International Music Co.

This is a rare programmatic work from nineteenth-century German composer Carl Reinecke, which tells the story of the water spirit Undine, who gains a soul by marriage to a human being and establishes a relationship with God. Dedicated to flutist Wilhelm Barge, a soloist in the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra from 1867 to 1895, the Undine sonata gradually uses more vibrato as it progresses, indicating Undine's acquisition of a soul. Drawn from original manuscripts, this updated text is an opportunity for the advanced flutist to showcase skills and ability of expression.
