Hungarian March and Rondo
Composed by Franz Schubert
for Flute, Bb Clarinet, and Piano
Arranged by Michael Webster
Published by Theodore Presser Company
Duration: c. 14 minutes
Includes score, flute part, and clarinet part
The rich trio literature for Flute, Clarinet, and Piano created by Michael Webster comprises many faithful transcriptions as well as Webster’s original reworkings of opera highlights. Fitting between these opposite approaches, HUNGARIAN MARCH AND RONDO is a newly-formed concert work using two movements from Schubert’s Divertissement a la Hongroise, D. 818, originally for Piano, Four Hands. The opening Hungarian March has all the stately bounce and elegance of a Schubert March Mliitaire, and the Rondo is a charmed inspiration from the Schubert who created many hundreds of the world’s most beautiful lieder and ornamental instrumental chamber works.
