“Trockne Blumen” Introduction and Variations, composed by Franz Schubert, arranged by Gudrun Hinze for Flute Quintet
This arrangement of Franz Schubert's Introduction and Variations on “Trockne Blumen” was masterfully created by Gudrun Hinze for her flute quintet, Quintessenz. In this arrangement, the original flute solo has been divided among the parts, with the intention that every member of the flute group would have thematic material at some time. Although the original score appears to be only a duet between the piano and the flute, you will be able to discover the rich polyphony of the composition even more easily when the piece is played by five instruments.
Scored for 3 C flutes (flute 2 doubles on piccolo), alto flute, bass flute
