Sonata in D Major, Op.5, No.1, by Giuseppe Maria Cambini
Transcribed for Flute and B-flat Clarinet by R.A.Evans
Score and Parts, PDF $7.99
Giuseppe Maria Cambini (1746-1825) was an Italian-born violinist and composer. He was one of the most prolific composers of his era, particularly of instrumental works, of which he wrote over 600, including numerous symphonies, 149 string quartets and over 100 trios, as well as ballets, operas, & oratorios. Flutists will know him for his concertos and extensive body of chamber works featuring the flute, including duos, trios, quartets and quintets.
Cambini wrote his Sonata in D Major, Op.5, No.1 for two flutes, and Noteworthy Sheet Music has published a re-notated version of the flute duet at the suggestion of flutist Richard A. Evans, who long ago obtained the music from the Library of Congress and believed it undeserving of its current obscurity. Aware of the scarcity of music composed for flute-clarinet duos, Mr. Evans also initiated this flute-clarinet edition of Cambini's Sonata in D Major by transcribing the flute-2 part for clarinet in B-flat. We at NSM agreed that the Op.5, No.1 duet should be made more readily available to present-day musicians and audiences, in both the flute-flute and flute-clarinet versions. Our editions provide both scores and parts, and incorporate articulation and dynamic edits supplied by Mr. Evans.

Grande Sonate, Op.62, by Franz Danzi
for Piano and Basset Horn; re-notated, edited, and with occasional ossia elaborations suggested by John W. Pratt
Piano Score and Basset Horn Part, PDF $13.99
Franz Danzi (1763-1826) was an active musician, cellist, and teacher in Mannheim, Munich, Stuttgart, and Karlsruhe. A prolific composer, especially of music for the stage and chamber music from keyboard solos to sextets, he revered Mozart and mentored Weber. His wind quintets are notable. His Grande Sonate, Opus 62, for piano and basset horn, was published about 1823, along with an alternative cello part which sometimes differs from the basset horn part in other ways than octave transposition. // The original publication of Danzi’s Opus 62 is available at imslp.org., but there is no full score and the parts are hard to play from, or sometimes even to read at all, lack measure numbers, have a few errors, and differ in the number of measures in the last two movements. We have therefore prepared a full score including the basset horn in concert pitch, to facilitate checking the fit of the basset horn and piano lines and our transcriptions for other instruments against the original. — excerpted from John Pratt’s foreword to the edition

Grande Sonate, by Franz Danzi
transcribed for Piano and Clarinet by John W. Pratt
Piano score and B♭ Clarinet part, PDF $14.99
Danzi’s Grande Sonate, Opus 62, written for piano and basset horn, was published around 1823, along with an alternative part for cello. Please see additional information about this piece in the article describing our re-notated basset horn edition. The Grande Sonate comprises four movements and provides both sparkle and mellow rich beauty. It is nicely adaptable to other winds, particularly the clarinet. Certain passages in the final movement of the original work seem to invite elaboration or improvisation by the solo instrument, and arranger John Pratt offers suggestions for possible additions or alternatives for the clarinet, making it even more fun to play.

Sonata in D Major, Op.10, No.1, by François Devienne
Duet transcribed for Flute and Clarinet
Score and Parts, PDF $9.99
François Devienne (1759-1803) was a French composer, flutist and bassoonist, as well as a professor at the Paris Conservatory. His compositional output included: 12 operas; many concerted pieces for various wind instruments, with orchestra; overtures; concertos, quartets, trios, sonatas, etc. for flute, piano, and other instruments; 12 suites; numerous romances, chansons, etc.; and an influential flute method book, Méthode de flûte (1795).
Noteworthy Sheet Music published this edition of Devienne's Sonata in D Major, Op.10, No.1 at the suggestion of flutist Richard A. Evans, who long ago obtained the original flute-flute duet from the Library of Congress and believed it undeserving of its current obscurity. Aware of the paucity of repertoire available for flute and clarinet, and realizing the piece would work nicely for that instrument pair as well, he transcribed the second flute part for B♭ clarinet. We at NSM agreed that the duet, which has two movements, Allegro spirituoso and Rondo: Allegro poco presto, should be made more readily available to present-day musicians and audiences. Our edition provides both score and parts and incorporates articulation and dynamic edits supplied by Mr. Evans.

Sonatina, Op.100, by Antonín Dvořák
Transcribed for Clarinet in A (and Piano) by J.W.Pratt and C.A.Vater
A-Clarinet Part, PDF $11.99
From 1892 to 1895, Czech composer Antonin Dvorak (1841-1904) was in the United States, serving as the director of the National Conservatory of Music in New York City. He wrote his Sonatina in G major (Opus 100, B. 183) for violin and piano in 1893, and in some ways it reminds us of his triumphant Symphony No. 9, "From the New World", which was composed the same year. The Sonatina was written for and dedicated to Dvořák's own children. It has an average duration of 20 minutes and consists of four movements: I. Allegro risoluto; II. Larghetto (Indian Lament); III. Scherzo. Molto vivace; and IV. Finale. Allegro.
In transcribing this popular work for clarinet, we have incorporated several changes in the part to account for sonic differences between the clarinet and the violin. In so doing, every effort has been made to maintain the spirit and character of the original composition. In places the New World feel is even stronger with a wind instrument. We provide here our transcribed A-clarinet part only; Dvořák's original piano part works well with the new clarinet part, and the score for violin and piano is readily available in the public domain as a free pdf download from imslp.org.
