Serenade No 2 for flute quintet

$27.00

Röntgen (1855-1932) was born in Leipzig as the son of an accomplished violinist. After his music education, he settled in Amsterdam as the piano teacher at the Conservatory for Music. His fame was centered around his talents as an accompanist, composer, and conductor, and his founding a dynasty of well-known Dutch musicians. This Serenade (originally for woodwind quintet of the Gewandhaus Orchestra Leipzig) is one of his nearly 600 compositions. Its style merges classic and romantic (reminiscent of Carl Reinecke), with the five movements showcasing the different character of all the instruments. A delightful arrangement indeed!
