Fantasie Pastorale Hongroise for flute and piano Op.26

By Doppler Albert Franz

F. Doppler: Fantasie Pastorale Hongroise Op.26 was originally written for two flutes and piano in 1870 and dedicated to Alexandre Nikolits, professor of Pest Conservatory. However, the final version of this piece ended up as a Fantasie for flute and piano. Sir James Galway created an arrangement for flute and orchestra, now the most played version of Doppler’s work.
