  • McDonald - Three Four-Note Flute Duets - Two Flutes

    mcdonald.three four-note flute duets.image 240pxThree Four-Note Flute Duets, Op.448b, by John D. McDonald

    Contemporary Composition for Two Flutes, PDF $2.99

    "Composed for Ethel Farny and her flute students at the Rivers Music School, these short duets sprout initially from the first flute/violin duet of Several Strands, Op. 448a.  This Grazioso is indeed made from only four pitches. Similarly, Murmurando confines itself to a four-note knot until its final dyad.  The third duet, Con Eleganza, stretches the four-note concept a bit more. Each instrument has its own four-pitch pattern, and a coda leaves the four-note idea behind all together, concluding the set with six slower, somewhat more chromatic bars that could very well lead to future music of more emotional complexity.  Perhaps there will be more duets to come."    ― John McDonald, November 2009

    John McDonald is a member of The Mockingbird Trio, directs the Tufts Composers Concert Series, and serves on the boards of several performance organizations in New England.  He has recently fulfilled commissions from The Chamber Orchestra of Boston, pianist David Holzman, The Firebird Ensemble (for an Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music Residency, with support from a Meet the Composer MetLife Creative Connections Award), and the ANA Trio (Fredonia University; soprano, cello, and piano), among others.  Recent performances by McDonald at the Goethe Institut of Boston, at Tufts, and at many other venues have been highly acclaimed.

  • Mendelssohn - On Wings of Song - Alto Flute & Piano

    MendelssohnOWOS.NSMOn Wings of Song, Op.34, No.2, by Felix Mendelssohn

    Transcribed for Alto Flute and Piano by C.A.Vater

    Alto Flute Part and Piano Score, PDF $5.99

    Having made significant contributions as a poet, essayist, journalist, and critic, Christian Johann Heinrich Heine (1797-1856) is considered one of the great German writers of the 19th century.  Many of his romantic poems were chosen as the text for Lieder by such eminent composers as Schubert, Schumann, and Brahms.  The Heine poem Auf Flügeln des Gesanges, which translates into English as On Wings of Song, was set to music by Felix Mendelssohn and published as No. 2 of six songs for voice and piano constituting his Opus 34.  Auf Flügeln des Gesanges became one of Mendelssohn's most famous art songs, and remains popular to this day.  Arrangements and transcriptions of the music have been created for small orchestra, flute and guitar, flute and piano, violin and piano, two violins, cello and piano, treble choir, and piano solo, among others.  With its charming, simple melody and narrow pitch range, On Wings of Song is highly accessible and understandably a favorite of vocal and instrumental soloists of all levels.  Our transcription is in the key of G, and the song is especially mellow and lovely when played on alto flute.

  • Mozart - Concerto in D Major - Alto Flute

    Transcribed (from horn and piano arrangement) for Alto Flute by C.A.Vater

    Alto Flute Part, PDF $3.99

    Mozart's Concerto for Horn in D major for Horn and Orchestra is scored for solo horn in D, with two oboes, two bassoons, and strings.  Henri Kling (1842-1918), horn player, composer, conductor, and professor, arranged the concerto for horn and piano.  We used the Kling arrangement as the source from which to create a transcription of the horn part for alto flute.  The piano scoreis in the public domain and available as a free pdf download from other sources such as imslp.org/.

    The Concerto in D major, K.412 is a short work of approximately 8-10 min duration, consisting of only two movements - an Allegro and a Rondo Allegro. The movements are light and joyous, and pose no particular technical challenges to the alto flute player.  The written range is quite limited, extending only from D5 to E6.  Thus, this piece can be played by less advanced students as well as by more experienced alto flutists.

    Transcribed for Alto Flute (from horn and piano arrangement) by C.A.Vater

    Piano Score and Alto Flute Part, PDF $9.99

    Mozart wrote his Concerto No. 2 in E-flat major for Horn and Orchestra for his good friend, the virtuoso horn soloist Joseph Leutgeb (c.1745-1811), who became first horn in the orchestra of the Salzburg archbishop in 1770.  The concerto was completed in 1783.   Its movements are light, joyous, and teeming with melody: a wide-ranging opening allegro, a slow middle movement, and a final rondo. The second movement Andante is particularly lyrical and beautiful, whereas the concluding Rondo is quite comic with an obvious hunting theme.

    The concerto was arranged for horn and piano by Henri Kling (1842-1918), horn player, composer, conductor, and professor.   We used the Kling arrangement, which was published ca.1890 and is now in the public domain, as the basis of our transcription of the concerto for alto flute and piano.  We introduced only minor changes to the solo horn line to adapt it for alto flute, and those alterations were made with sensitivity and the intention of preserving Mozart's inspired creation to the fullest extent possible.

    Transcribed for Alto Flute (from horn and piano arrangement) by C.A.Vater

    Alto Flute Part, PDF $5.99

    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) wrote four horn concertos for his good friend Joseph Leutgeb (1732-1811).   Leutgeb was a virtuoso horn player, who served as principal horn in Salzburg and thus became a colleague of Leopold Mozart, during the young Wolfgang's early years.  Leutgeb appears to have remained a friend and inspiration for W. A. Mozart throughout the composer's life.

    The Mozart horn concertos are delightful, joyous works.  The third horn concerto, K.447, like two of the three others, was written in the key of E-flat major.  It is thought to have been composed in 1787.   The work is in typical concerto form, consisting of three movements—an Allegro, a Romanze, and another Allegro, which together have an average performance duration time of approximately 15 minutes.

    K.447, Concerto for Horn in E-flat major for Horn and Orchestra, is scored for solo horn in E-flat, with two clarinets, two bassoons, and strings.   Henri Kling (1842-1918), a horn player who was also a composer, conductor, and professor, arranged the concerto for horn and piano.  His transcription was published by Breitkopf und Härtel, n.d. (ca. 1890).  We used the Kling edition, now in the public domain and available as a free pdf download from imslp.org, to create a transcription of the horn part for alto flute.  Our edition incorporates adjustments that account for differences in range and sonority between the alto flute and horn, while striving to maintain the style and character of the original composition.

    We provide the alto flute part only; the piano score (horn and piano) by Henri Kling is freely available from imslp.org.

    Mozart's Horn Concerto No.4, K.495, was composed in 1786 and scored for solo horn, with two oboes, two horns, and strings (bassoon ad libitum).   The work consists of three movements—Allegro moderato, Romanza-Andante, and Rondo-Allegro vivace—with the rousing Rondo clearly evoking a hunt scene.   The horn player Henri Kling (1842-1918) created arrangements of all the Mozart horn concerti for horn and piano.   His transcription of K.495 was published by Breitkopf und Härtel, n.d. (ca. 1882).  We used the Kling edition, now in the public domain and available as a free pdf download from imslp.org, to create a transcription of the horn part for alto flute.  Our edition incorporates adjustments that account for differences in range and sonority between the alto flute and horn, while striving to maintain the style and character of the original composition.

    Transcribed for Alto Flute and Piano by John W. Pratt

    Alto Flute Part, PDF $3.99

    Mozart's Sonata in A Major, K.305 is perhaps the most completely extroverted of the Mannheim sonatas.  Like K.302, it opens with four emphatically tonic bars, followed by a gentle, linear four-bar theme, all immediately repeated.  The second movement of K.305 is the only movement of the Mannheim sonatas in theme-and-variations form.  It is far from routine.  The theme has an unusual variety of rhythms and accompaniment figurations; the 32nd-note variation is the very first, not a later one; the minor variation is at the prevailing tempo, not slow; and a brief but telling piano cadenza interrupts the antepenultimate variation's peroration.

    Transcribed for Alto Flute and Piano by John W. Pratt

    Alto Flute Part, PDF $6.99

    Mozart composed K.296 in 1778 under the same creative impulse as the other Mannheim violin sonatas, K.301‒306, but published it later, in 1781, with five other three-movement sonatas.  He dedicated it to his Mannheim landlord's 15-year old daughter, Therese-Pierron Serrarius, who perhaps inspired the turns lightening the opening fanfares, quick trills in the first theme, and contrasting textures and sparkling interplay between the instruments in the first movement.  The second movement is a beautiful arietta with wonderful opportunities for the alto flute to both present and accompany the melody.  In the concluding Rondo, in sonata-rondo form, the instruments repeatedly swap the theme and much of the episodic material. ―J. W. Pratt

    Transcribed for Alto Flute and Piano by John W. Pratt

    Alto Flute Part, PDF $4.99

    Both movements of Mozart's Sonata in C Major, K.303 are quite different from others of his 'Mannheim' set. The unusual first movement is in sonata form mixing retro and novel features—the whole first subject and transition to the dominant are adagio and considerably varied in the recapitulation, and there is no development. The second movement is an old-style minuet (without trio), ending with a pedal point terminating in a tremble.  Our transcription for alto flute shifts the violin part to a different octave in three short segments and we have substituted musically appropriate alternatives for the double stops.  We provide our transcription of the violin part for Alto Flute in G; the piano scoreis available in the public domain as a free pdf download from imslp.org/.

    Alto Flute Part, PDF $9.99

    Mozart's Sonata in D Major, K.306 is by far the longest and showiest of the 'Mannheim' sonatas, with three large-scale movements, some quasi orchestral textures, much doubling, and brilliant passage work.  The first movement's development expands four transitional bars of the exposition into a far-reaching harmonic excursion.  The recapitulation begins with the second subject and returns to the first so late it amounts to a coda, the only instance of 'mirror' sonata-form in the Mannheim set.  In contrast, the second movement, Andante cantabile, has a structurally orthodox sonata form, compressing and ornamenting the themes in the recapitulation, as befits the tempo.  The finale is an elaborate rondo alternating between allegretto in 2/4 and allegro in 6/8.

    Transcribed for Alto Flute and Piano by John W. Pratt

    Alto Flute Part, PDF $5.99

    Mozart's second group of violin sonatas, the seven "Mannheim" sonatas of 1778, were begun in Mannheim where Mozart also worked on a flute commission.  The violin parts rarely make significant use of double stops and are in general very well suited to alto flute.  It is perhaps suggestive for performance that Mozart designated all his violin sonatas for "piano and violin".

    Mozart's works in minor keys are rare and special: consider the G-minor quintet and Symphony No. 40.  The K.304 sonata is his only work in E minor and it is mysteriously compelling in its simplicity.  It was written the same summer that his mother died.   

    We provide the transcribed alto flute part; the piano score is readily available in the public domain, free of charge.

    Alto Flute Part, PDF $4.99

    Mozart's Sonata in E-flat Major, K.302 has two movements, an Allegro and a rondo Andante grazioso.  This ebullient sonata opens with a striking call to attention, much used later, which descends on the tonic triad but alternates half and quarter notes in 3/4 time, thus avoiding both square rhythm and repeated root positions on every down beat.  The theme which follows is contrastingly gentle.  The second movement offers a firmly forward-moving theme whose immediate repeat and final returns are variously and charmingly re-orchestrated.  (excerpted from JWP's foreword to the edition)

    Alto Flute Part, PDF $4.99

    This sunny sonata has two movements, an up-beat Allegro con spirito followed by an Allegro that is actually a sprightly minuet with a trio section in the minor, almost as near to a Beethoven scherzo as a Haydn minuet.  The violin leads as often as the piano, including at the beginning and throughout the trio, but is largely spared Mozart's typical keyboard passage work.  As with six other violin sonatas composed in 1778, the first of Mozart's maturity, the violin part rarely makes significant use of double stops and is in general very well suited to alto flute.  In fact, K.301 was begun with flute in mind. We provide our transcribed alto flute part.  The piano score is available in the public domain as a free pdf download from imslp.org/.

    Mozart's second group of violin sonatas, the seven "Mannheim" sonatas of 1778, were begun in Mannheim where the composer also worked on a flute commission. The violin parts rarely make significant use of double stops and are in general well suited to a wind instrument. Mozart's works in minor keys are rare and special: consider the G-minor quintet and Symphony No. 40. The K.304 sonata is his only work in E minor and it is mysteriously compelling in its simplicity. Mr. Pratt has created an excellent transcription of the Sonata in E minor, K.304 for A-clarinet. K.304 was written the same summer that Mozart's mother died, an association often pointed to and the inspiration for our cover image selection.

    Note that Mr. Pratt's transcription offers the advantage of being in the original key, and that we provide the A-clarinet part only.  The clarinet part works perfectly with the piano part in Mozart's score for piano and violin, which is in the public domain and readily available on imslp.org, free of charge.

    Contemporary Composition for Flute (doubling piccolo & bass flute) and Harp

    Score and Flute Part, PDF $15.25

    Play of Light, for flute and harp, was written for the duo "2" (Peter H. Bloom and Mary Jane Rupert).  The piece is built around spaciousness, transparency, multi-hued shadings and playful chases.  The incorporation of bass flute and piccolo further enhances the inherently rich color possibilities of the flute/harp combination—the three flute instruments in succession form a sort of "super-flute" in the work's final section.  

    Drawing on his jazz and improvisation background, composer Richard Nelson in this composition leads the players into a substantial section that they complete through improvisation.  While they follow signposts on intensity, energy and pitch content that he provides, this practice nonetheless creates an element of intrigue and unpredictability that the composer values highly.  It also assures that each performance of the piece will have a strongly individual profile. 

    The Duo "2" artists have released a studio recording ofPlay of Lightavailable free of charge; please click the link to listen to the audio file on the composer's SoundCloud site.

    Peter H. Bloom gave a lecture on “Effective Writing for Flutes and the Contemporary Flutist” at the 2018 Snow Pond Composers Workshop.  In his presentation, Mr. Bloom discussed various topics using four contemporary works published by Noteworthy Sheet Music, including Play of Light, as examples.  We later published a free text version of this excellent presentation on our website, in the Reviews and Articles section, including some of the audio clips and supplemental written materials that Mr. Bloom used as demonstrations.

  • Nicholson - Coolun - Fl or Fl & Pf or Fl & Hp

    Gassett Collection - Facsimile Edition by Noteworthy Sheet Music

    Piano Score and Flute Part, PDF $9.99

    Charles Nicholson (1795-1837) was a masterful, hugely popular, and highly influential English flutist and teacher, famous for his individual style and powerful tone.  Among Nicholson's compositions are 13 fantasies and 15 airs with variations, including Coolun. A favorite Irish Air with Four Variations arranged for the Flute with an ad libitum Accompaniment for the Piano Forte, or Harp.  The "Coulin" or "Coolan" was described in an 1833 letter to the editor of the Dublin Penny Journal (www.libraryireland.com) as "an air, that once heard even in the earliest infancy, can never be forgotten—a melody which breathes the most touching tenderness and exquisite sensibility, and the memory of which, enables the Irish to hear Scotland's 'O, Nanny wilt thou gang with me,'—or her 'Banks and Braes,' without envious repinings."

    Nicholson's consummate rendition of Coolun is highly effective when played either as a solo for flute alone or by flute with accompaniment of piano, lever harp, or pedal harp.  The Gassett Collection print from which our facsimile was created consists of a score for piano forte and flute, without a separate flute part. The flute part included in our edition was created from the score using a modern music notation software program.   

    Noteworthy Sheet Music's publication of Coolun was favorably reviewed by Katherine Borst Jones in the January, 2014 issue of Flute Talk magazine.  You can read the review, reproduced on our website for your convenience, or at Flute Talk (subscribers).

  • Nielsen - Fantasy Pieces - Alto Flute & Piano

    nielsen op2 245 px nsmFantasy Pieces, Op.2, by Carl Nielsen

    Transcribed for Alto Flute by C.A.Vater

    Piano Score and Alto Flute Part, PDF $9.99

    The Fantasy Pieces for Oboe and Piano, Op.2 (Fantasistykker for obo og klavier) were composed in 1889, when Nielsen was 24.  They were written in the romantic idiom before his compositions became more experimental, chromatic, and dissonant.  Nielsen wrote the Fantasy Pieces for his good friend Olivo Kraüse, the Danish oboist and composer to whom the work is dedicated.  Nielsen and Krause were colleagues in the Royal Chapel Orchestra.   The Fantasy Pieces were premiered by Krause and the pianist Victor Bendix at a Royal Orchestra Soirée in Copenhagen in 1891.  Arrangements of the pieces for violin (with orchestra or piano), created by Hans Sitt, subsequently became quite popular.

    Our transcription of the oboe part for alto flute is a simple transposition, as the entire oboe part falls nicely within the range of the alto flute.  Although the tonal characteristics of the alto flute and oboe are very different, the Fantasistykker sound so natural on alto flute that the listener might think that the two pieces were composed specifically for that instrument.

    The first piece, Romance, is a beautiful andante that allows the alto flutist to exploit the rich, sensuous sonority of the instrument.  The contrasting second piece is a lively Humoresque in which the performer's lightheartedness and technical agility prevail.

    Flute and Piano

    Flute Part and Piano Score, PDF $0.00

    Wilhelm Albrecht Otto Popp (1828-1903) was an esteemed German composer, flutist, and pianist. He received his flute training from Caspar Kummer and Louis Drouet, and served as court pianist and flutist at the Ducal Saxon Court Theater in Coburg-Gotha. In 1867 he moved to Hamburg and became first flute of the Hamburg Philharmonic Orchestra. Popp composed some 600 works, many of which were written for flute and piano; most of his compositions were published in his lifetime and were well-known to musicians of his day.

    Wilhelm Popp’s Gruß an Ungarn (Greetings to Hungary) was first published for flute and orchestra in 1890, and an edition for flute and piano was published in 1899. NSM re-notated the flute and piano version, changing only the formatting and adding bar numbers and a new cover page. With a decidedly Hungarian sentiment, this piece is great fun to play and provides an enjoyable, exciting listen for audiences as well.
