There are still little, unknown gems to be found by even the greatest and most famous names in music history. This charming, short duo in two movements will delight flautists: Neither flute part is technically very demanding and it is therefore well-suited as easy teaching material. The dedication “for friend Degenharth” (a lawyer amongst Beethoven’s close circle of friends) leaves open whether it was commissioned or a gift. The work was not published during Beethoven’s lifetime, but the autograph has survived. Our edition follows the musical text in the Beethoven Complete Edition and offers Urtext in customary Henle quality.
