Sonatine for Flute and Piano no.1 in D major op.137 D384
Franz Schubert: Sonatine no.1 in D major op.137 D384 was composed in 1816, at the age of 19. This was a time when young Schubert received a rejection from the teaching post in Laibach (now Ljubljana) and decided to move out of the family's house and dedicate his time fully to composition.
Only eight years after Schubert’s death the three "Sonaten für’s Pianoforte mit Begleitung einer Violine" were published by Diabelli in Vienna as Opus 137 under the title "Sonatinen" for violin and piano.
Although originally designated by Schubert as sonatas, all three compositions have become known throughout the world as “sonatinas”, most likely for marketing considerations. The diminutive form was undoubtedly selected because the pieces are fairly easy to play.
Most likely these Sonatas were discovered only after Schubert's death because he didn't write them on commission.
"The sonatines (originally for violin) are very rarely recorded on the flute and yet I find that it sounds marvelous, and there is also this wonderfully strange resemblance between the theme of the first sonatine and the Mozart violin sonata in E minor K.304 ."
Emile Naumoff (piano)
1. Allegro Molto; 2. Andante; 3. Allegro Vivace
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.
