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. Learn more by clicking to the Southland Sketches for Alto Flute or Flute article.
The official release date for this new AMW CD is January 14, 2022, but CDs may be purchased through NSM now. This CD is a treasure, featuring exquisite renditions of tunes by the great Duke Ellington and his circle performed by the Peter Bloom and John Funkhouser flute and piano jazz duo. This disc would make a great holiday gift; find more info on the Exuberant Ellingtonia listing page.
