“Do not miss this!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]

The Fantasy Pastorale Hongroise probably started life based on this lovely piece and the unmistakeable opening is, if anything, even more beautiful on two flutes than on one. The rest of the music is new but just as wonderful and could only have been written by the Doppler brothers. Do not miss this - it's a little gem!

From the Publisher

The Ungarischer Hirtengesang (Chant pastoral hongrois) for two flutes and piano represents most likely the original version of Franz Doppler’s most popular flute composition, his Fantaisie pastorale hongroise, opus 26. From 1856 on this jointly composed fantasy often figured on the brothers’ concert programs and was always annonced as composed and performed by Franz and Carl Doppler. As only the handwritten solo parts have survived, the piano accompaniment has been reconstructed by Jan Philip Schulze.

Performance duration (approx): 9'30''

Difficulty guide: 8-9
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
