In June 1932 the composer Paul Hindemith spent four days at a boarding school in Plön to work with young people. He wrote short instrumental pieces in various instrumentations, ranging from recorder trio to orchestral piece. The music became well-known under the title of 'Plöner Musiktag' and is still very popular today. It consists of four parts: Morgenmusik - Tafelmusik - Kantate - Abendkonzert. The second piece of the six-part 'Abendkonzert' is a 'Flute solo with strings'. The present transcription of the string setting for the piano exactly follows the layout of the score so that voice leading and harmony remain unchanged. Our new edition is suitable for concert performance and the music competition 'Jugend musiziert'.
