Nineteenth-century opera arrangements for flute and piano have been extraordinary popular. Unfortunately they have so far received little attention in the annals of music history. Even in concerts you may hardly find them on the programmes. Therefore the present recording provides exciting music to rediscover with works by Briccialdi, Herman, Popp, Galli, Kuhlau, Fürstenau, Boehm and Andersen.

Dorothea Seel uses three different flutes to reproduce the flute sound of the time in all its diversity. This demands specific playing techniques, which can be determined from the historical source texts.

Christoph Hammer plays an original pianoforte from the collection of the Tyrolean regional museum in Innsbruck. The woody tone, rich in harmonics, is a perfect foil for the flutes.
