Friedhelm Döhl Edition, Volume 16
Music for and with flute

Catalog number 21068

Along with his symphonic, chamber music, vocal and scenic works Döhl also wrote many works for solo instruments (, especially for piano, string instruments and the flute.
During his years as a student Döhl had numerous encounters with flautists, many of whom also performed his flute compositions for the first time, such as Gustav Scheck, Dorothy Hubbard, Severino Gazzeloni, Eberhard Blum, Gerhard Braun, Hartmut Gerhold, Charles-Joseph Bopp, Hans-Martin Linde, Susanne Gärtner. It was a stroke of luck that Angela Firkins (internationally renowned soloist and chamber musician and professor at the Muiskhochschule in Lübeck) became interested in Döhl’s flute compositions and performed a representative cross-section on 12th October 2010 in Lübeck . The pieces, performed in chronological order, met with great acclaim and also featured Christian Ruvolo (piano), Janna Ruck (soprano) and Troels Svane (cello). The live recording of the Lübeck concert forms the basis for this CD.
