Music’s unique and amazing ability to reflect our feelings without using words or any visual cues has been valued throughout history and is a trait composers sought to perfect in their own writing. Even so, no other musical era seems 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 now, and it was an instrument of choice for composers of the day. The 19th century symphonic repertoire is a rich repository for extended, expressive flute solos, yet the instrument remained underrepresented in solo and chamber works.

Under the title Lux Nordica, this edition contains a selection of Romantic pieces by various composers of northern origin. Denmark is represented by Niels W. Gade and Carl Nielsen, while Johan Svendsen and Christian Sinding come from Norway—as did Edvard Grieg, undoubtedly the best known of the composers whose works comprise this collection.

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