Alto Flute Part, PDF $6.99

Sonata, Opus 166 (Oboe Sonata in D major) was composed by Saint-Saëns in 1921, the year of his death, and has since become a standard of the oboe repertoire.  Although written for oboe with accompaniment of piano, the piece is very well suited for alto flute.  Played by either oboe or alto flute, this Sonata provides the soloist with opportunities to demonstrate both technical expertise and expressive performance.  We provide here the alto flute part; the piano part is readily available in the public domain as a free pdf download of the original score for oboe and piano.  Here is a link to one such source: Piano Score
