"This arrangement of "Till Eulenspiegels lustige Streiche" is based on Richard Strauss' work for a huge orchestra with a broad variety of instruments. I dared to make this reduction for five flutes and one ratchet, because I believe that the crucial character of Strauss' hero, Till - a witty rogue, a mischievous jester of lively agility, as well as of south Bavarian charm and a happy disposition - matches miraculously the character of the flute!"
- Flute 1
- Flute 2/Piccolo (and Ratchet/Rattle)
