Introduction and Variations for flute and piano (D 802)

By Schubert Franz

F. Schubert: "Introduction and variations" for flute and piano (D 802) was written in 1824, most likely for flautist virtuoso Ferdinand Bogner, and first published only in 1850 (Op 160), after Schubert's death. The Introduction and seven variations on "Trockne Blumen" (Dry Flowers) theme from his song cycle "Die Schöne Müllerin" (The Fair Maid of  the Mill) is the only original flute composition written for flute by Schubert. This is a story of young heartbroken miller who daydreams about his beloved Maiden who would visit his grave (after he would drown himself in a brook) and thought "He was true to me!" as he would be buried with now-withered flowers she once gave him.

Schubert Franz

Franz Schubert (1797-1828) was an Austrian composer who is regarded as one of the most prominent composers of Romantic era. He started his composition studies with Antonio Salieri but most of his time worked as a music teacher and tutor.
The first public concert of his music in Vienna was held only in 1828, only eight months before his death at age of 31. Since publisher's started to notice Schubert's work only in his final years, most of his works were published only after his death.
