Gipsy Airs, Op. 20 (Flute and Piano)
Composer: Sarasate, Pablo de
Gipsy Airs, Op. 20 (Flute and Piano) by Pablo de Sarasate (1844-1908), Published by Zimmermann, Edited by Werner Richter, includes flute part and piano score.
The "Zigeunerweisen" (gipsy airs), a famous and popular virtuoso piece from violin literature, required some modification with regard to their performance on the flute. Nevertheless the harmonies, melodies, rhythms and ornaments typical of gipsy music have been kept. As regards the sound, the transposition up by a fifth seemed to be a natural choice.
