Just as in his “Trout” Quintet (D 667), “Wanderer” Fantasy (D 760), and string quartet “Death and the Maiden” (D 810), in the flute variations on “Trockne Blumen” (D 820) Franz Schubert employs one of his songs as the thematic basis of an instrumental composition. “Trockne Blumen” (Dried Flowers) is the eighteenth song from the cycle “Die schöne Müllerin” (D 795), composed in autumn 1823. In January 1824, before publication of all of the Muller songs that summer, the Theme and Variations in E minor for flute and piano were written, prefaced by a weighty introductory section. The wor remains Schubert's single and singular virtuoso composition for flautists: tremendously difficult for the flute to play, and incidentally, sometimes very tricky for the piano to accompany. Schubert's much-reworked autograph manuscript is the sole authoritative source for our Urtext, as it demonstrably served as the engraver's copy for the posthumously published first edition. One of the variations he crossed out entirely – the Henle Urtext edition reproduces it, more for informational purposes than for performance, in the appendix.

  • July 02, 2012 Essential Repertoire. Superb Edition

    Creamy paper, precise dark print, authentic markings; all the hallmarks of a Henley Edition. Just looking at this music makes you a better player!!"Trockne Blumen" is essential repertoire; a beautiful piece of Romantic music written specifically for the flute (well, the variations anyway). Listen to the song ( from "Die...

    Schone Mullerin") sung by Fischer-Diskau for interpretive guidance, and don't forget to read a translation of the lyrics.
