Originally for flute and piano, Schubert's reworking of "Trockne Blumen" - the eighteenth song in his song cycle Die schöne Müllerin - is here adapted for the violin. It was quite common in Schubert's own time for composers to write works "for flute or violin" and in keeping with this practice, violinist Jacqueline Ross has prepared this edition, along with notes on the musical background and critical commentary on the violin editing. Her research into 18th and early 19th century performance practice has been widely recognised and has influenced her recordings of baroque and classical repertoire. This includes the Naxos release of the complete works of Schubert, recorded on historical instruments, in which this adaptation of "Trockne Blumen" is featured. Violinists will welcome this adaptation intended primarily for performers, as a vibrant and substantial addition to the repertoire.

We can only thank the composer for exploring this instrumental adaptation in inspired fashion, and gratitude to Ms. Ross for making it available for violin with sensitive editing and practical bowings and fingerings.
