Written for the virtuoso Ferdinand Bogner, the Variations on Trockne Blumen from Die schöne Müllerin, Schubert’s only original composition for flute and an instrumental tour de force, takes its theme from the climactic song of the cycle The Fair Maid of the Mill.
Six other songs, from Schubert’s final cycle, Winterreisse, and the posthumous Schwanengesang, arranged for flute and piano by his contemporary Theobald Boehm, complement a highly effective transcription of the much-loved Arpeggione Sonata by the renowned flautist and conductor Uwe Grodd.
The Rotorua Post from Grodd’s native New Zealand praised the flautist-conductor’s “purity of sound and refined musicianship.”
