Fantasies Nationales Op. 59 for flute and piano

By Andersen Joachim

Joachim Andersen: Fantasies Nationales Op. 59 for flute and piano was written in 1896 and 1897 as a series of 6 Fantasies, each dedicated to different nationalities: 1 Danois ; 2 Ecossais; 3 Russe; 4 Suedois; 5 Italien; 6 Hongrois.
This composition was written during his transition time from Berlin to Copenhagen and before Andersen took a conductor position with the famous Tivoli Orchestra.
The cosmopolitan and well-traveled throughout the world he was exposed to different cultures and folk tunes which he used in this composition.

The No 1 Danish fantasy is based upon popular Denish folk song "Vort modersmål er dejligt".

The No 2 Ecossais (Scottish) and No 5 Italien (Italian) contain folk melodies from these countries while No 4 Suedois derive from Swedish Polka Lieder, transcribed from Isidore Dannstorm’s compositions.
In Fantasie No 3 Russian the composer picks up tunes and style of Russian fantasy as a reminder of the three years he spent in St. Petersburg (1878-1881) before he moved to Berlin.
