Gabriel Pierné composed his Canzonetta for clarinet and piano (Op.19) in 1888, and it is among his most charming lighter works.  The number of commercial recordings of the piece attest to its enduring popularity, extending into the modern era.  Pierné dedicated this short, cheerful little song to his friend Charles Turban (1845-1905), the French clarinetist and professor of clarinet at the Paris Conservatory.  The main melody is bouncy and gay, and brings merriment to players and audiences alike.  Others have created transcriptions for alto sax and for flute.  The piece is just as delightful when played on alto flute, and we now offer our new edition for alto flute and piano—click to preview p1 of the score.  Canzonetta would make a great encore piece for a concert or recital.
