June 23 – Sonata Undine, II. by Carl Reinecke

Carl Reinecke, born on this day in 1824, was perhaps the most influential flute composer of the 19th century. His iconic Sonata Undine exhibits the romanticism, sweeping melodies, and programmatic form typical of the music of his time. This recording is part of a larger project pairing music based on poetry with the words that inspire it. The album Words and Music is available from Titanic Records.
