(3-4) Ensemble - Trois Duos, Concertants Brillants et Faciles pour Deux Flutes, Opus 11, 2me Livre de Duos pour 2 flutes
Composed by Eugene Walckiers
Arranged by edited by Peter Bloom
Walckiers (1793-1866) was a French flutist who studied flute with Jean-Louis Tulou and composition with Anton Reicha. He was a prolific writer of chamber music and certainly deserves more attention by modern flutists. The publication contains extensive notes and material on the composer. The second duet is great material for sightreading as well as studying the 19th century style of composition. Printed as flute 1 and flute 2, separately, the copy is clear and easy to read. Two editions were sent, one with a score and parts and one with just the parts. ($15, Noteworthy Sheet Music, LLC, www.NoteworthySheetMusic.com). K.B.J.
