Flute Quartet g-minor op. 69

score and parts 


The composer Schneider is a representative of the spirit of Haydn and Mozart, who wanted to be understood as their preserver. In the reviews, he was attested compositional skill and a solid artistry that was indebted to bourgeois taste. Among his conspicuously large number of compositions for flute are about 60 quartets for flute and string trio. Most of these works were probably composed during his Rheinsberg years, although the fact that various works by Schneider were published with the same opus number by different publishers, as well as a lack of stylistic development in the compositions, make it difficult to get an overview of when they were written. Schneider's quartets are based on his models Mozart and Haydn, whereby we always have a 3-movement form with Schneider; the minuet is missing. The demand for house music was great and the enterprising Schneider successfully served this market with many of his compositions. This new edition of the Quartet in G minor op.69 follows the first edition published by Simrock, Bonn. Only deviations in articulation, as well as dynamic instructions between the parts, have been brought into line.
