Grand Sonata for Fortepiano and Flute Obbligato, Op. 83, No. 1
Flute and fortepiano are the featured instruments on the album Kuhlau: Grand Sonatas, Op. 71 & Op. 83. Performed here with flair and brio by the great flautist Mika Putterman and the fortepiano virtuoso Erin Helyard, the sonatas of Friedrich Kuhlau have inspired many artists over time. Among them was Johannes Brahms, who was so impressed with the sonatas that he wrote to Clara Schumann in 1854 expressing a wish to learn the flute solely so he could perform Kuhlau’s works with her at the piano.

In the early 19th century, the flute was the favoured instrument of gentlemen. The great German Romantic Jean Paul wrote that the flute was a “magic baton, which changes one’s internal world, when it is touched by it; it is a divining rod plumbing the depths of the soul.” During his lifetime, Kuhlau was considered a significant composer for this instrument, and his idiomatically written music for the flute remains to this day a benchmark in the repertoire.

Born in 1786 in a small provincial town between Hannover and Hamburg, Friedrich Kuhlau spent time in Hamburg as a pianist and teacher before fleeing to Copenhagen when Napoleon’s forces invaded the city in 1810. He was a major contributor to Denmark’s musical life until his death in 1832.

This album was recorded at the Oscar Peterson Hall, on August 12 and 13, 2015. Fortepiano: Nannette Streicher circa 1825 par Thomas et Barbara Wolf 1995.
