Aria for flute and piano (Op. 48, No. 1)
E. Dohnányi: Aria for Flute and Piano (Op. 48, No. 1) was composed in 1958, during his Tallahassee period when he taught at the Florida State University. The Aria was dedicated to young flutist Ellie Baker, the daughter of John Baker, the president of the Ohio University in Athens. Inspired by Ellies's enthusiasm for his beloved Brahms ("If only Brahms had written some solo music for flute"), Dohnányi wrote Passacaglia for Solo Flute as well.

Ernst (Ernő) von Dohnányi (1877-1960) was a Hungarian pianist, conductor and composer with very conservative (some may hear some vague resemblance to Brahms’s music) compositional style.
After serving as Director of the Budapest Academy of Music (1934-1943), he moved to Austria and then to United States, after many years of controversial debates and clearing his name regarding his role in the Holocaust. Among his most popular compositions: Serenade for String Trio (Op. 10) and variations on a Nursey Tune for piano and orchestra (Op. 25).
