Music’s unique and amazing ability to reflect our feelings without using words or any visual cues has been valued throughout history and is something composers have sought to perfect in their own writing. No other musical era, however, seems to have been more destined to capture and explore human emotions than the Romantic period that blossomed in the 19th century.

At that time, the instrument inventor Theobald Böhm refined the flute, giving it the shape we are familiar with today, and it became popular with composers of the day. The 19th century symphonic repertoire is a rich repository for extended and expressive flute solos, yet the instrument remained under-represented in solo and chamber works. This book, which contains several arrangements of Romantic movements for flute and piano, is intended to give advanced flautists the opportunity to become acquainted with more music of the Romantic era, enjoying it as a soloist.

German Romanticism includes selected works from some of the most important composers of the style, to whom—in terms of musical history—the Austrian Franz Schubert also belongs. Besides Carl Maria von Weber he represents the Early Romantic period, while Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy and Robert Schumann belong to the High Romantic era. Richard Wagner, Carl Reinecke and Johannes Brahms represent the later 19th century.

The enclosed CD provides a demonstration of each piece, followed by the piano accompaniment with which to play along.
