  • Reissiger & Sedlatzek - La Pasta - Fl & Pf

    R-S LaPasta nsmLa Pasta! Op.36, by Reissiger & Sedlatzek

    Concertantes Variations sur la Cavatina de Rossini, No.3

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

    Flute and Piano Parts, PDF $13.50

    Reissiger and Sedlatzek's  work  La Pasta is a particularly effective concert piece with which the accomplished flutist can enthrall a diverse audience by evoking the dramatic majesty of grand opera while applying the scintillating techniques of the 19th century virtuoso.  La Pasta is flutist Johann Sedlatzek's homage, celebration, and souvenir of the redoubtable  mezzo-soprano Giuditta Pasta (1798± - 1866±), arranged by the superb composer/conductor Carl Gottlieb Reissiger.  Pasta (nee Negri)  was  a cynosure of Italian opera who created brilliant dramatic roles for Bellini, Donizetti, and Rossini.  Legendary Maria Callas (1923-77) is often compared to Pasta  by opera aficionados, but few are likely to have heard both in their prime.  — P. H. Bloom, 5/23/2011

    The virtuoso Italian flutist Giulio Briccialdi (1818-1881) was a captivating performer and a brilliant and prolific composer of works for the flute.  His compositions became highly popular among flutists and include several concerti and numerous duets, caprices, fantasies, and etudes.  He served as professor of flute at the Academy of St. Cecilia in Rome and later at the Florence Conservatoire.  A proponent of the Boehm flute, Briccialdi is best known today for his invention of the Briccialdi B-flat thumb key and for his variation on the Carnival of Venice, "Il Carnevale di Venezia" (Op.78).  We offer here our facsimile edition of his charming, challenging, and otherwise unavailable Fantaisie pour la Flûte sur des motifs de l'opera La Sonnambula de Bellini (Op.110)

Tulou composed a great many works for flute, including 5 concertos and numerous solos and duets.

We offer here our facsimile edition of Tulou's Introduction et Rondo pour la Flûte avec Accompagnement de Piano (Op.49), an energetic, enjoyable romp for flute.

    Gassett Collection - Facsimile Edition by C.A.Vater/Noteworthy Sheet Music

    Flute and Piano Parts, PDF $20.25

    Carl Gottlieb Reissiger's Opus 45 was written as a Sonata for Violin and Piano, but was adapted for flute by Anton Bernhard Fürstenau.  Fürstenau (1792-1852) composed and arranged many works for flute.  He was among the most admired flutists of the 19th century and remains a well-known favorite of flutists today.  Reissiger (1798-1859) was an accomplished composer of opera, orchestral, and chamber music.  An influential figure in the city of Dresden, he served as Director of the Dresden Opera and later as Kapellmeister.  Les Inseparables! No.1, is the first of the Three Grand Original Duets for Piano and Flute by Reissiger and Fürstenau.  The piece, which consists of three movements, is a virtuosic work that should delight and challenge both players.

    Berbiguier's Nouvelle Fantaisie (Opus 80), like his Grande Fantaisie (Opus 77), was composed on melodies from Carl Maria von Weber's genre-defining opera Der Freischütz.  Both pieces were published around 1825.  Enthusiasm for Der Freischütz continued to build in subsequent decades, as evinced by the nearly numberless fantaisies, paraphrases, souvenirs, and variations that have been published.  Melodies from Freischutz pervade the classic repertoire of instruments from aeolian pianola to zither, including examples for concertina, mandolin, saxophone, and ocarina quartet.  Piano and flute sheet music.

  • Altès - Premier Solo pour La Flûte - Flute & Piano

    Altes PremierSolo nsmPremier Solo pour La Flûte, Op. 20, by Henry Altès

    Facsimile Edition by Noteworthy Sheet Music
    with a Foreword by Peter H. Bloom

    Flute Part and Piano Score, PDF $12.75

    Henry Altès (1826-1899) is primarily remembered today as the author of a particularly useful Méthode Complète de Flûte (1906), yet his impact on fellow flutists for nearly a century-and-a-half can hardly be overestimated.  A student of the Boehm flute pioneer Louis Dorus, Altès succeeded Dorus as Professeur au Conservatoire de Parisupon upon the latter's retirement in 1869 and served in that capacity for a record twenty-eight years. Premier Solo pour La Flûte was dedicated to Louis Dorus, and was the first of ten Morceaux des Concours that Altès would write for the annual Paris Conservatory competition.  That this was the only one of the ten to have been required in two contests speaks to its endearing durability.  (excerpted from the foreword by P. H. Bloom) 

    The NSM edition of the Premier Solo pour La Flûte avec Accompagnement de Piano by Henry Altès is an “enhanced” facsimile of the original print publication from Paris, chez S. Richault, Editeur, Boulevard Poissonniere, 26 au 1er, R4241. We used an image editing program to clean up digital scans of the original printed pages and make a few minor modifications and corrections, as noted in our publication. We have added a new cover page (paying tribute to Altès’ birthplace of Rouen with a painting by Gauguin) and a foreword by Mr. Bloom, but the music has not been re-notated and thus remains in the original style and format; please have a look at the free preview pages provided before ordering.

  • Beethoven - Adelaide - Flute & Piano

    beethoven adelaide nsmAdelaide, by Ludwig van Beethoven

    Anonymous Arrangement for Flute, each edition with a Foreword by P. H. Bloom

    New Edition, Flute Part and Piano Score (flute part in small staff) – PDF $10.50

    Facsimile Edition, Flute Part and Piano Score (original with clarinet part in small staff) – PDF $8.25 

    Beethoven completed his musical setting for Friedrich von Matthison's poem Adelaide in 1796.  The song quickly became a favorite interpretive vehicle for instrumentalists as well as singers.  Clarinetist Iwan Müller's "bel canto" treatment, essentially the original melody with added ornaments, cadenzas, and interpretive notations, remained a favorite among concertizing clarinetists for more than a century.  It's likely that Müller's work informs the anonymous arrangement for flute, published by Diabelli in the second quarter of the 19th century, that we present here....  This anonymous paraphrase of Adelaide is a masterful study of the subtle nuance and passionate restraint of "bel canto" instrumental praxis.  (excerpted from the foreword © by P. H. Bloom)

    After offering our facsimile edition of Adelaide for some time, we decided to create a newly-notated modern edition as well.  We love (and perform) this piece so much, that we didn't want anyone to forgo an opportunity to acquaint themselves with it merely due to the 19th century presentation of the facsimile.  Now, there is a choice between the facsimile edition and a modern edition, the latter of course having the flute part in small staff in the score.
