German Intermezzo for Flute and Piano

German Intermezzo for Flute and Piano

Publisher – Lazarus Edition


Intermezzo, published in 1894, was the third piece German wrote for the eminent flautist Frederick Griffith, a friend from his student days at the Royal Academy of Music. The pair often worked together following their appearance at the Steinway Hall in May 1892, where the first performance of German’s Suite for Flute and Piano received an outstanding reception from the critics, and where they also played Saltarello (1889).

Griffith wrote to his old teacher in Paris, Paul Taffanel, describing German as “the most gifted composer and beautiful orchestrator that we have over here. In fact, he is quite different to any other English composer, whose works generally I confess I do not care for.”

Composer – Edward German

British composer, Sir Edward German was born in 1862, in Shropshire, England and died in London in 1936.  He began his career as an orchestral violinist and conductor in London. By the middle of the 1890s, Edward German’s reputation as an orchestral composer was well-established. Nevertheless, he found time to write more intimate music for solo instruments and piano, and nearly all of his works for solo wind instruments date from this decade. He was knighted in 1928.

His music is noted for its lyric quality and distinctly English character.
