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.
Giuseppe Maria Cambini wrote his Sonata in D Major, Op.5, Duo 1 as a duet for two flutes. However, the piece works just as well with the second flute part transposed for clarinet, and provides some much-needed repertoire for that instrument combination. Other than changing the key for a B-flat instrument, no modifications were required for the transcription. The idea to publish a version of Cambini's Sonata in D Major, Op.5, Duo 1 for flute and clarinet came from flutist Richard Evans, who also edited our edition.
NSM is delighted to welcome Lydia Kakabadse to our family of contemporary composers who contribute to our catalog. Please click to read about her piece Russian Tableaux for string quartet, a truly lovely, moving work that we’ve just published. There’s also a link to the composer’s website, where you can listen to audio samples of the three movements.
