Concertino for Flute and Small Orchestra

Concertino for Flute and Small Orchestra

By Wagner Siegfried

S. Wagner: Concertino for Flute and Small Orchestra was written in 1913 to a request from Gilbert Graf Gravina, the nephew of Siegfried Wagner. The orchestra is intentionally reduced not to overwhelm the solo flute. The Concertino has many motifs and references from Siegfried’s operas “Herzog Wildfang” and “Der Friedensengel”. It was premiered in 1914 at the Music Hall Hamburg under the direction of Siegfried Wagner.

Wagner Siegfried

Siegfried Wagner (1869 – 1930) was a German conductor and composer, the only son of Richard Wagner. Despite musical upbringing Siegfried initially was interested in architecture studies but by age of 20 began to study harmony and counterpoint with Engelbert Humperdinck. Few years later he took a trip to East Asia with his close friend, English composer Clement Harris that greatly impacted his decision to pursue musical career. Upon return he started to work at Festspielhaus in Bayreuth. His first opera Bärenhäuter (Bearskin) had a big success that was mostly attributed to the fame of his father and grandfather Franz Liszt.

In 1908 he took over the direction of the Bayreuth Festspiele from his mother Cosima Wagner (née Liszt) and kept this position until his death in 1930. Even though he wrote 18 operas, a symphony, three symphonic poems as well as other works, Siegfried Wagner didn’t gain widespread popularity as a composer outside Germany.
