Sonata Appassionata in F#, Op.140 for Solo Flute by Sigfrid Karg-Elert
Edited by Rien de Reede
“The existing literature does not exhaust the unlimited technical possibilities (of the Boehm flute)”, asserted Karg-Elert in his preface of the 30 Capricci (1919). And with this idea in mind, he completely changed the stereotypical use of the flute, repurposing it as a privileged instrument going forward for later composers of the twentieth century. An absolute masterpiece of all-time flute literature, the “Sonata Appassionata” can also be used as a valuable teaching tool.
