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.
Among J. S. Bach's big organ works, the Toccata, Adagio, and Fugue, BWV 564 is atypical in ways that make it especially adaptable to transcription for winds, with the Adagio and Fugue being particularly well-suited to a flute quartet. Check out this new arrangement for two flutes, alto flute, and bass flute by John Pratt.
The renowned African-American composer H. T. Burleigh created his Southland Sketches for violin and piano, but they also work very nicely on either alto flute or flute. Our new NSM edition provides parts for both alto flute and flute for three of the four original miniatures, so players may choose to play all three of these pieces on one instrument, or switch instruments between sketches, depending on personal preference.
