The extraordinarily charming Flute Trio No. 2 op. 9 by the English flutist, composer and flute maker John Clinton (1809-1864), which is made accessible again for the first time in this edition, considerably enriches the repertoire of flute trios. Although the trio's four-movement formal layout and movement structure corresponds to the classical sonata or symphony, its content can clearly be attributed to the Romantic period. The musical action is pleasantly distributed among all 3 voices, and requires a solid flute technique. Errors in the first printing, published by Ashdown & Parry, London, have been quietly corrected, and the differently provided articulation in the parts brought into agreement.
All parts have been arranged and checked in practice in such a way that performance without interruption is possible, but necessitates turning the pages while playing with the right hand.
