Schubert – Variations on Trockne Blumen
Mozart - Andante in C
Mozart - Rondo in D
Reinecke - Undine Sonata

In one of Schubert’s most moving songs, a jilted lover finds solace in the thought of flowers that will one day lay on his grave. The composer later revisited its haunting melody, allowing it to blossom into an extraordinary and virtuosic set of variations for flute and piano. It is played here by a musician who regularly has the critics searching for superlatives, alongside music by Mozart and a romantic sonata where myth meets music, depicting the story of a flirtatious water-sprite who must leave her underwater world and seduce a mortal man.

‘Walker, playing with staggering virtuosity and charm, kept the audience on the edge of their seats throughout, and brought the house down at the end.’ – The Guardian

‘the superhuman genius of the LSO’s principal flautist, Adam Walker…was miraculous, his tone shifting imperceptibly from seductive roundness to an edgy astringency…Walker literally breathed character into the music, with an effortless, assured virtuosity.’ – Classical Source

Coffee, tea, soft drinks and biscuits served from 10am – 10.45am
