Hymnus, Op.57 composed by Julius Klengl (1859 - 1953)
A late Romantic/early modern German composer, Klengel was a cellist, and was famous for the etudes and solos that he composed for the cello.
This lush, chordal spiritual was dedicated to the memory of Austro-Hungarian conductor Artur Nikisch, and was originally scored for 12 cellos. This piece can be performed in several different combinations--only C flutes, only alto flutes, only bass flutes, or any combination of these flutes. 15 players are needed, as parts 9, 10, and 11 are divisirequire two players each. (Note: A cello can play double stops - two notes at the same time - but flutes generally do not.)
