Originally for piano and basset horn, this piece alternates sparkle with rich mellow beauty and it’s well-suited to either flute or clarinet. Since we at NSM have grown quite fond of Danzi’s Grande Sonate, we decided to transcribe it for both instruments, so we and our friends could enjoy playing it. We’ve just published our edition of Danzi's Opus 62 for piano and flute ... check it out if you’re in the mood to try some new repertoire.
We provide a newly-typeset edition of Danzi’s Grande Sonate, Op.62, edited and with a few ossias suggested by John Pratt to embellish the basset horn part. The original publication, from around 1823, doesn’t include a full score, is difficult to read, and contains several errors; so, we hope players will appreciate having access to a newly-notated, easy to read modern edition.
NSM re-notated the flute and piano version of Wilhelm Popp’s Gruß an Ungarn (Greetings to Hungary), first published in 1899. With a decidedly Hungarian sentiment, this piece is great fun to play and provides an enjoyable, exciting listen for audiences as well.
Alexander Glazunov’s Elegy, Op.44, was written for viola and piano in 1893. The lovely viola melody is readily adaptable for other instruments, and we’ve just published John Pratt’s transcriptions for flute or alto flute.
Check out the new video from The Museum of Fine Arts Boston, featuring NSM’s contributing editor Peter H. Bloom performing on the Museum’s five-key crystal flute (1837) made by Claude Laurent.
