Sonata Appassionata for flute solo (Op. 140)
S. Karg-Elert: Sonata Appassionata for solo flute (Op. 140) in F sharp minor was written in 1917 and dedicated to his fellow flutist Carl Bartuschat. They both were members of the regimental band where Sigfrid Karg-Elert played oboe from 1917 till 1919. During that period young composer wrote seven pieces for flute, inspired by Carl's fascination with Boehm's flute capabilities. Later Carl became flutist in the Gewandhaus orchestra and flute professor at the Leipzig Conservatory.
