“The other brother!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member -

It's so nice to have a piece by Carl Doppler alone as he is so often overshadowed by his more illustrious brother. These Variations follow the well trodden path of Introduction, theme and variations and virtuoso finale. A little easier than some of more famous pieces, this is great way to start off on your Doppler journey!

From the Publisher


It is rather a rarity to find a piece on a program composed by Carl Doppler alone. His recently discovered Variations sur un air hongrois, composed and published (Budapest 1860) for violin and piano has been out of print for more than 100 years and thus remained unknown. It is well suitable to be played on the flute and presents the composer equal to his brother. The Hungarian tune is a nostalgic poem about homesickness.
