This is an outrageous transcription for 2 flutes and piano (with optional, brief part for dramatic soprano) of Wagner's famous orchestral piece. It was intended to finish off a flute recital by highly qualified performers. At the first performance of this transcription, the vocal part (which is only 24-bars long) was performed by the pianist's page-turner, who just happened to be a dramatic soprano.
