Sonata "Undine," Op. 167 (Flute and Piano)
Sonata "Undine," Op. 167 (Flute and Piano) By Carl Reinecke, Ed. by Stephanie Jutt, Published By International Music Co.
Edited by Stephanie Jutt. 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.
