Faculty members Ransom Wilson, flute, and Peter Frankl, piano, have teamed up to record Works for Flute and Piano, released in June on the Nimbus label. The recording includes duos by Beethoven, Schubert, and Schumann.
The disc opens with Beethoven’s Serenade for flute and piano in D major, Op. 41, an arrangement of the Serenade, Op. 25. This is followed by Schubert’s Introduction and Variations on “Trockne Blumen” from the song cycle Die Schöne Müllerin, D. 802.
Concluding the recording is a collection of Schumann pieces: Three Romances, Op. 94; the songs “Widmung,” Op. 25, No. 1, and “Meine Rose,” Op. 90, No. 2; and another Romanze (No. 5 from Spanische Liebeslieder, Op. 138).
