Beethoven: Variations on Folksongs, op. 105/107
Code: SFP-B1330Grade: 4-5
Beethoven wrote these two sets of variations in 1818-1819. The publisher requested that Beethoven include, along with the piano, a part for melody instrument. The piano dominates the texture and contains the majority of the technique. The flute (or violin) is mostly melodic in nature. The edition includes great historical comments.
