Kronke Deux Papillons Op 165 for Two Flutes and Piano

Kronke Deux Papillons Op 165 for Two Flutes and Piano



This well-loved duet entitled ‘Two Butterflies’ for 2 flutes and piano comprises two charming movements. The first is of a more lyrical nature, while the second features playful and quick-paced scalic passages that are exchanged between the flute parts.

It appears that the term “Papillons” (butterflies) drew inspiration from Robert Schumann’s piano pieces op.2, which share the same name.


1st Mvt-Molto con gracia, leggierissimo
2nd Mvt- Molto vivo

Emil Kronke

German composer, Kronke’s (1865-1938) music embodied the late German Romantic tradition that followed Schumann.

He studied at music conservatoires in Leipzig and Dresden with teachers including Carl Reinecke, Thomas Organist Karl Piutti, Felix Draeseke, Theodor Kirchner, and Jean Louis Nicodé.

As a composer of the late Romantic period, Kronke composed an array of piano works, orchestral and operatic pieces as well as numerous compositions for the flute, amongst others.

Moreover, he actively engaged as a pianist, serving as a chamber musician and teacher. After settling in Dresden, Kronke remained an active concert pianist and composer until his passing. In recognition of his accomplishments, he was granted the distinguished title of Royal Professor in 1917.
