Transcribed for Alto Flute and Piano by C.A.Vater
Piano Score and Alto Flute Part, PDF $5.99
József Bloch (1862-1922) was a Hungarian violin virtuoso, composer, and professor at the National Academy of Music and the National Conservatory (www.jewishencyclopedia.com). His Petite Fantaisie Hongroise No.1, Opus 21, was written for piano and violin and published by Bárd, ca. 1901. We thought this piece would work beautifully on alto flute, so we created a transcription of the violin part. In the range written for the Petite Fantaisie Hongroise, the alto flute may evoke the dark, mournful tone of the modern tárogató, which is often referred to as the Hungarian national instrument. We provide both our transcribed alto flute part and a re-notated edition of the piano score.

Alto Flute part, 3 pages; Piano Score, 6 pages; Total, 12 pages.
