Flute Part and Piano Score, PDF $10.00

The third movement of Haydn's string quartet Opus 20, No. 5 is an Adagio with a simple melody that is treated to delightful filigreed elaboration and obbligato decoration by the violin.  Although more complex quartet movements are typically unsuited to transcription, in this beautiful Adagio the soloistic nature of the violin part and the simplicity of the lower string parts lend themselves very well to an arrangement for flute and piano, as in the fine transcription we offer here.  Click to preview p1 of the score.
