This publication is part of The Flute Collection, which brings together a range of selected pieces from the international concert life of famous flautists, curated by internationally acclaimed flautist Emmanuel Pahud. The second volume of the collection presents Lensky’s Aria from Tchaikovsky’s opera Eugene Onegin. The aria was first published by Universal Edition in the 1920s in an arrangement for violin and piano by Leopold Auer. Inspired by Lensky’s Aria, Guy Braunstein, currently the leader of the Berlin Philharmonic, has revised Tchaikovsky’s aria to make it playable on the flute. The present edition of Lensky’s Aria for flute and piano further serves as the piano score of Yoel Gamzou’s orchestra version, also published by Universal Edition. For advanced players.
