Doppler Sonata Opus 25-2 flutes and Piano-Schott

Doppler Sonata Opus 25-2 flutes and Piano-Schott

Suitable for advanced players.

This sonata for two flutes and piano by Franz Doppler was rediscovered by Prof. András Adorján in the former production archive of the Schott music publishing house and is now published completely for the first time. An undated handwritten note on the title page of the manuscript solves the riddle: “NB. Von dieser Sonate nur Andante u. Rondo stechen zu lassen und das Stück demgemäß zu titulieren“. [NB. Engrave only Andante a. Rondo of this Sonata and name the piece accordingly.] This is why only the last two movements were printed by Schott and this composition survived as a fragment. Andante and Rondo are very popular among flautists. Now they can enjoy the whole sonata including the first two movements Moderato and Menuetto.

The Doppler Brothers

In 1828, Franz Doppler began studying flute with his father, Joseph Doppler and later formed a flute duo with his younger brother Karl.

The Doppler brothers proceeded to tour Europe as a flute duo for many years, performing a number of their own arrangements which proved popular with audiences. Both brothers became members of the Orchestra of the German Theatre, Budapest. Alongside their touring, they also founded the Hungarian Philharmonic Orchestra. Franz Doppler was Principal flautist at the opera in Budapest and deputy conductor. He then became chief conductor of the Vienna Court Opera as well as Professor of Flute and the Vienna Conservatoire.

Franz Doppler composed an array of virtuosic pieces for flute including flute duets, concertos and showpieces. Many of his works include Russian and Hungarian elements as well as operatic themes.
