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.
