Alto Flute Part, PDF $6.99
Niels Wilhelm Gade (1817–1890) became the preeminent figure in 19th century Danish musical life after an early success in Copenhagen and five years in Leipzig as Mendelssohn's assistant and successor. His Fantasiestücke (Fantasy Pieces, Opus 43) for clarinet (or violin) and piano were published in 1864, apparently his only work published that year although others were in progress. They are dedicated to the clarinetist "Herrn Kammermusiker Mozart Petersen." Our flute transcriptions take into account the nature of the flute and the discrepancies between Gade's original score and the clarinet and violin parts. Click to preview p1 of the Alto Flute part.
