  • Vercoe – Kleemation – Flute & Piano

    vercoe.kleemation nsmKleemation, by Elizabeth Vercoe

    Original Composition for Flute and Piano

    Flute Part and Piano Score, PDF $16.95

    Kleemation for flute and piano is in five short movements based on five drawings by Paul Klee titled: Goodbye to You, Please!, Afraid on the Beach, More Will Be Marching Soon, and Woman Sowing Weeds.  Described as "highly abstract yet accessible," the piece was commissioned by Austin Peay University in Tennessee and received its premiere there in 2003.  The New England premiere was at the Duxbury Art Museum in 2004 by the duo "2" (flutist Peter H. Bloom and pianist Mary Jane Rupert).  "2" has since performed the piece on tours in the U.S., Thailand, Australia, and New Zealand.  Click to read a testimonial to Elizabeth Vercoe's composition Kleemation written by Mr. Bloom. kleemation cd

    Kleemation was recorded by "2" and can be heard on the PARMA Recordings all-Vercoe CD entitled Kleemation and Other Works by Elizabeth Vercoe.  In an IAWM Journal CD review Dr. Laura G. Kafkawrites: “Vercoe musically renders Klee’s drawings with all the humor, fear, and reality that make each one leap from its canvas and dance.”  Click to read Dr. Kafka’s full review. In another review published by Audiophile Audition magazine on September 26, 2013, Lee Passarella writes: "Vercoe (b. 1941) also shows a willingness to adapt different musical styles and elements to her basic idiom: the essential atonality of her music is leavened with some well-chosen pop influences where appropriate to the subject matter at hand.  That includes Kleemation, a work based on drawings by Swiss modernist painter Paul Klee.  Klee's sometimes whimsical, sometimes troubling art turns for its inspiration to the uninhibited world of the child artist."

  • Walckiers - Fantaisie pour la Flûte - Fl & Pf

    JRV-11Fantaisie pour la Flûte, Op.65, by Eugène Walckiers

    Gassett Collection - Facsimile Edition by C.A.Vater/Noteworthy Sheet Music, with a Foreword by Peter H. Bloom

    Flute Part and Piano Score, PDF $19.50

    A student of Jean-Louis Tulou, Eugène Walckiers (1793-1866) was a flutist and an exceptionally talented composer.  His Fantaisie pour la Flûte Sur la Ronde du Postillon de Lonjumeau is a delightfully engaging and challenging work based on emblematic material from the comic opera by the French composer Adolphe Adam (1803-1856).  The famous Ronde du postillon appears at the end of Act I of Le Postillon de Lonjumeau (The Coachman of Lonjumeau), which premiered in Paris in 1836.

  • Weber - Andante e Rondo Ongarese - Clarinet (and Piano)

    Weber Andante-e-Rondo Op35 nsmAndante e Rondo Ongarese, Op.35, by Carl Maria von Weber

    Transcribed for Clarinet (and Piano) by John W. Pratt

    Bb Clarinet Part, PDF $6.99

    Carl Maria von Weber (1786-1826) is widely credited with being a founder and leading composer of the Romantic school.  He was prolific, making major and influential contributions to almost every kind of music, including 7 operas and 3 Singspiels, other vocal and choral music, orchestral and wind music, and piano music.  Yet his chamber music consists of just 9 works (counting a set of 6 minor violin sonatas as one), and only the Grand Duo, the flute trio, and the clarinet quintet are substantial.  The scarcity of Weber's chamber music makes a transcription of a concertante work, especially a fine one not often played like the Andante e Rondo Ongarese, particularly welcome.  Weber’s Op.35 was first written in 1809 for viola (J79), but revised in 1813 for bassoon (J158) and apparently proved more popular in that form.  Combining the viola's range and the bassoon's timbre points inexorably to the clarinet.

  • Weber - Grand Duo Concertant - Alto Flute

    Weber GrandDuo Afl nsmGrand Duo Concertant, Op.48, by Carl Maria von Weber

    Transcribed for Alto Flute and Piano by John W. Pratt

    Alto Flute Part, PDF $9.98

    Carl Maria von Weber (1786-1826), an important forerunner of the Romantic school, was a prolific composer, yet wrote only three substantial chamber works.  One is the Grand Duo Concertant for clarinet (or violin) and piano.  Sounding a bit like Mozart on steroids, with robust harmonies and brilliant passagework, it has three movements - an exciting Allegro con fuoco, a beautiful Andante with a very rich, chordal piano accompaniment and passionate piano interlude, and a sparkling Rondo.  We offer this excellent alto flute transcription of the clarinet part; the piano part is readily available in the public domain, as a free high quality pdf download of the score for clarinet and piano; here is a link to the listing on imslp.org: Piano Score

    Alto Flute part, 10 pages; Total, 12 pages.
