Wilhelm Popp studied with the great Louis Drouet in the 1850s and wrote many charming works for the flute, this among them. Susan Milan, acclaimed soloist and teacher, has edited this elegant edition.
First published in Hamburg in 1888. in editing the Sonatinas Susan Milan has tidied some of the articulation, making the flute part consistent. Discrepancies between markings in the flute and piano part have been corrected. She has occasionally added some slurs where the lyrical nature of a section might be enhanced and staccati have been added where it appears to have been missing. On the whole, expression marks have not been added, or changed original markings.
