Tune of the Day: Erlkönig by Schubert

Transcribed for solo flute

Schubert composed “Erlkönig” as a Lied for voice and piano in 1815, setting to music Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's 1782 poem of the same name, which depicts a child being assailed by a supernatural being, the Erlking or “Erlkönig”.

The present transcription for solo flute was provided by an anonymous contributor.
