The six songs of Clara Schumann’s Op.13 convey the intense emotions portrayed in the poems that inspired them, and they are absolutely charming. These lieder are nicely adaptable for a solo instrument in lieu of voice, and particularly lovely when played on either alto flute or clarinet. We’ve just published parts for either alto flute or B-flat-clarinet, transcribed from the original Sechs Lieder voice lines; visit the listing pages for further details.
We are delighted to have just published Tom Schnauber’s Not-Pooh Songs, in which the composer sets to music six children’s poems by A. A. Milne. Two editions are available from NSM, one for voice and flute and a second for voice and oboe. These pieces are highly effective, entertaining, and captivating ... players and audiences alike will adore the Not-Pooh Songs. Visit the listing page for more information, including preview pages of the scores and a link to a Not-Pooh Songs recording by Mitsi Westra and Pamela French.
Timothy J. Bowlby composed Laurels for solo flutist playing flute, alto flute, and piccolo in 2018. The work is compelling ... challenging but playable. Visit the Laurels listing page on NSM for additional information about the piece, plus a preview page of the music and a link to a recording of the premiere performance by Peter H. Bloom.
