      During a visit to Denmark in December 1829 A. B. Fürstenau (1792‐1852) performed his variations on the Romance Dybt i Havet („Deep in the Sea“) from Elverhøj („Elves’ Hill“), the greatest success of his Danish friend Kuhlau. Shortly afterwards these variations were edited by Lose in Copenhagen as his opus 72.

  • About the composer +
    • Anton Bernhard Fürstenau (born 20 October 1792 in Münster; d. 18 November 1852 in Dresden, Germany) was a German flutist and composer. He was the most famous virtuoso in Germany on his instrument and the most important Romantic flutist of the first half of the nineteenth century. His son Moritz Fürstenau (1824–1889), whom he later sent to study with Theobald Boehm in Munich,was one of his numerous students. Skeptical as for the technical advancements of the flute, he remained faithful to the nine key flute until his death.
