Arranger's Notes:
      The brothers Franz and Karl Doppler were the most famous flutists of their generation. They performed as a duo of flute virtuosos, but were also active as orchestra members, conductors and composers. Together, they founded the first National Hungarian Symphony Orchestra in 1853. 
      Many of Franz Doppler's flute and piano compositions exist also as a version for Flute and Orchestra. My arrangement is based on one of these orchestrated versions, which seemed to me much more colorful and vivid than the piano reduction. I tried to imitate the mournful lament of the English Horn with the “buzzing head joint” and the lively snaring of the string bass pizzicato with a “slap tongue” effect. I split up the solo part, so every member of the flute quintet has a challenging contribution to the extended virtuosity and the folk-based dance sections of the original composition. Thus, the “Hungarian Fantasy” is no longer a solo piece but high-level chamber music.
      The “Buzzing Head” has an extra hole with a membrane and produces a snaring sound like a Kazoo or Bandoneon. It is a nice optional effect, but the arrangement can also be performed with a normal flute.
