The Doppler Brothers
In 1828, Franz Doppler began studying flute with his father, Joseph Doppler and later formed a flute duo with his younger brother Karl.
The Doppler brothers proceeded to tour Europe as a flute duo for many years, performing a number of their own arrangements which proved popular with audiences. Both brothers became members of the Orchestra of the German Theatre, Budapest. Alongside their touring, they also founded the Hungarian Philharmonic Orchestra. Franz Doppler was Principal flautist at the opera in Budapest and deputy conductor. He then became chief conductor of the Vienna Court Opera as well as Professor of Flute and the Vienna Conservatoire.
Franz Doppler composed an array of virtuosic pieces for flute including flute duets, concertos and showpieces. Many of his works include Russian and Hungarian elements as well as operatic themes.
