Having recorded the work, Pahud noted that there were no print editions of this violin sonata available for flutists. Understanding that “it was quite common for flautists to make their own adaptations,” Pahud filled this perceived need with the present edition. Originally for violin and piano, the Strauss Sonate in three movements fits neatly into the repertoire for advanced flutists.

„Die Sonate op. 18 von Richard Strauss ist in dieser vorliegenden Fassung eine große Bereicherung für unser doch recht übersichtliches romantisches Repertoire. Ich spiele sie oft und mit großer Freude an dieser herrlichen Musik.“
Christina Fassbender, Flötistin und Pädagogin
