Emmanuel Pahud presents


The “Violin Sonata op. 18” by Richard Strauss, composed in 1887, has been skillfully adapted for flute and piano by acclaimed flautist Emmanuel Pahud. This adaptation beautifully captures the essence of the original work while highlighting the expressive capabilities of the flute. Pahud’s masterful interpretation breathes new life into Strauss’s masterpiece, showcasing the flute’s versatility and enchanting tonal qualities.

Emmanuel Pahud adapted Richard Strauss’s “Violin Sonata op. 18” from 1887 for flute and piano. Having recorded the work, Pahud noted that there were no print editions of this violin sonata available for flautists. Understanding that it was quite common for flautists to make their own adaptations, Pahud filled this perceived need with the present edition. Originally for violin and piano, the Strauss Sonate in three movements fits neatly into the repertoire for advanced flautists.

Richard Strauss

Richard Strauss (1864-1949) was a German composer and conductor, renowned for his profound impact on the development of late Romantic and early modern classical music. With a career spanning over six decades, Strauss composed numerous influential works, including operas, symphonic poems, and orchestral works. His compositions, characterized by their rich harmonies, expressive melodies, and intricate orchestration, pushed the boundaries of musical expression. Strauss’s most celebrated works include “Also Sprach Zarathustra,” “Der Rosenkavalier,” and “Ein Heldenleben.” His innovative use of dissonance and tonal colours, along with his mastery of orchestral writing, has secured his place as one of the most significant composers of the 19th and 20th centuries. To this day, Strauss’s music continues to captivate audiences worldwide with its emotional depth and technical brilliance.
