Reinecke made the personal acquaintance of both, Mendelssohn and Schumann, as a young man. Liszt gave him a letter of recommendation for his trip to Paris and made him teach his daughter. Grieg, Sullivan, Svendsen and Janacek were some of his many pupils.

Sheet music for flute:

A score for the harp and a separate flute part. Probably for playing together it might be helpful for the flutist to play from the score, too.

I love romantical flute music. And this is the best example.
Based on the homonymous fable of Friedrich de la Motte-Fouque. Where have been 22 musical versions of this story in about a hundred years.
The story told by this piece of music: the nymph Undine falls in love with the knight Huldbrand and makes big sacrifices for this love. After the marriage her lover turns towards another woman. Undine returns to the world of ghosts and kills him.
First edition in 1882 and dedicated to the flutist Barge

Reinecke geh├Ârt zu meinen Favoriten. Die Fl├Âte hat sich gegen ein m├Ąchtiges Orchester durchzusetzen. Bei dieser Aufnahme funktioniert das bestens. Graf singt und der SWR begleitet duftig und farbig.
