LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN (1770-1827): 6 Variations on Folk Songs, Op. 105, 10 Variations on Folk Songs, Op. 107.
Catalogue Number: 09R028
Description: Since these 1819 pieces written for Scottish amateur George Thomson have rather easy flute parts, Gallois solves the problem of professional flutists not wanting to perform them by spicing them up using late 18th century improvisation and ornamentation effects to match the virtuosic piano writing. Patrick Gallois (flute), Maria Prinz (piano).
