"Kegelstatt" Trio in E-flat major, K.498, by W. A. Mozart
Transcribed for Alto Flute, Viola, and Piano by John W. Pratt, with a Program Note by Peter H. Bloom
Alto Flute Part, PDF $7.99
As Editor-in-Chief of Noteworthy Sheet Music, LLC, I recently found myself in the unusual situation of having received transcriptions of the "Kegelstatt" Trio clarinet part for alto flute from two of NSM's most experienced and proficient arrangers, John W. Pratt and Peter H. Bloom. That both arrangers chose to create a "Kegelstatt" part for alto flute, and that their transcriptions were nearly identical, attests to the value of adapting this Mozart clarinet part and its natural fit for the alto flute. Our edition includes Mr. Pratt's alto flute part transcription, as well as a program note written by Mr. Bloom for his upcoming alto flute performances of the "Kegelstatt" Trio with Ensemble Aubade (Peter H. Bloom, flutes; Francis Grimes, viola; and Mary Jane Rupert, piano/harp). —cav, December, 2016
Our edition includes only the alto flute transcription of the clarinet part; the original piano score and viola part are in the public domain and may be downloaded free of charge from IMSLP.org as good quality PDFs.
