Karg Elert Symphonic Canzona-Flute and Piano

Year of composition: 1917
Duration: 9 ′
Symphonic Song


This single movement work is romantic in style, combining lyrical melodies with technically virtuosic passages.

In 1995, Alwin Wollinger acquired an old edition from the previous owner, flautist Erich Meyer which included handwritten entries/corrections, possibly at the request of the composer. The original edition of 1919 has been completely revised.


Ruhig, empfindungsvoll
