Among the most famous works of the symphonic repertoire, the Slavonic Dances Opus 46 n°1 and n°3 and Opus 72 n°2 composed by Anton Dvorak are now grouped together in a collection of transcriptions for two flutes and piano produced by Jean-Christophe.

Neglected by the composers of the 19th century, who preferred the clarinet and the horn to the flute for their sound that was both wider and darker, several flautists took over the work of Mendelssohn, from whom they transcribed various works for their instrument.
