  • haydn.fantasia flcl cover nsmFantasia in C major, by F. J. Haydn

    Arranged as a Duet for Flute and Clarinet by John W. Pratt

    Flute Part, A Clarinet Part, and Mini-Score ― PDF $12.99

    Fantasia in C major (Op.58; Hob. XVII:4) was written by Haydn in 1789 for the pianoforte.  Based on a folk song about a farmer's wife chasing her cat, one can easily imagine in the music kittenish scampering, stealthy approaches, unexpected pounces, and mad chases with abrupt changes of direction.   The style and playfulness of the piece lend themselves well to flute and clarinet.  The transcription is able to capture the feel Haydn intended, with new coloring, while at the same time affording flutists and clarinetists the joy of experiencing the work first-hand. (adapted from JWP's foreword to the edition)

    Duo 3: Flute 1 Part, Flute 2 Part, and Mini-Score ― PDF $17.98

     

    Jules Herman's Grands Duos Concertantes (Opus 86) are works of ingenuity, charm, brilliance, grace, and humor.  Long overlooked, they are extraordinarily fine examples of concert-worthy duets of the late 19th century.  Originally published by Choudens in Paris about 1885, the Grand Duos were dedicated to composer François-Auguste Gevaert (1828–1908), then director of the Royal Conservatory of Brussels.  Flutists will find these works challenging and rewarding, teachers of advancing students will be amazed by their utility, and audiences will be enchanted.  (excerpted from PHB's © foreword)

    Note that these duets make for excellent sight-reading training... the music is interesting and demanding, and the parts are nicely balanced.  Duo 1 has three movements: Allegro moderato, Adagio sostenuto, and Rondo allegro.  Duo 2 also has three movements: Moderato, Scherzando, and Polonaise.

  • hewitt trip to nahant nsmTrip to Nahant, by James Hewitt

    Arranged as a Duet for Flute and Clarinet by John W. Pratt

    Flute Part, Bb Clarinet Part, alternate A Clarinet Part, and Score ― PDF $5.99

    James Hewitt (1770-1827) moved from London to New York in 1792 and was active in both New York and Boston as a composer, arranger, music publisher, performer, teacher, and orchestra conductor.  In Hewitt's time, Nahant was an island connected to the mainland by a sandbar submerged at high tide, now a causeway.  It was a popular, cool place for day trips from Boston and later became a fashionable summer resort.

    Hewitt's Trip to Nahant, a favorite Rondo (1811) was written for keyboard, and is typical of American music of the period.  It is charming, light in texture and subject, and well suited to arrangement for flute and clarinet. (adapted from JWP's foreword to the edition) We provide parts for Flute and Clarinet in Bb, along with an alternative part for Clarinet in A and a Score in concert pitch.  Please click to preview p1 of the Score for Hewitt's Trip to Nahant sheet music for flute and clarinet.

  • Hoffmeister Op50Duo3 fl-cl nsmSonata in D minor, Op.50, Duo 3, by Franz Anton Hoffmeister


    Duet transcribed for Flute and Bb Clarinet
    Score and Parts, PDF $11.25


    Noteworthy Sheet Music published an edition of the Sonata in D minor, Duo 3 from Hoffmeister's Trois Duos pour Deux Flûtes, Op.50, after being contacted by flutist Richard A. Evans. Years ago, Mr. Evans had located several editions of 18th and 19th century flute duets, long since out of print, at the Library of Congress. Finding them quite enjoyable to play, and believing them undeserving of their current obscurity, he and his music colleague Bronnie Stroud took the initiative of re-typesetting and editing the pieces using a modern music notation software program. Aware of the paucity of repertoire available for flute and clarinet duo, and realizing these pieces would work nicely for that instrument pair as well, he also transcribed the second flute parts for Bb clarinet. We at NSM agreed that these works should be made more readily available to present-day musicians and audiences, and we published them after making only minor stylistic and formatting revisions to Mr. Evans' scores and parts; the articulation and dynamic markings are those suggested by Mr. Evans.

    Duet for Two Flutes
    Score and Parts, PDF $11.25

    Franz Anton Hoffmeister (1754-1812) was a German music publisher and prolific composer. He studied law in Vienna, but after becoming captivated by the music scene in that city he devoted the rest of his life to music. His compositional output includes numerous symphonies and overtures, operas, string quartets, pieces for piano, and a great many compositions for flute, including concertos and chamber works. Noteworthy Sheet Music's edition of the Sonata in D minor, Duo 3 from Hoffmeister's Trois Duos pour Deux Flûtes, Op.50 was edited and notated by Richard A. Evans and Bronnie Stroud. Years ago, Mr. Evans located several original editions of 18th and 19th century flute duets, long since out of print, at the Library of Congress. He found them quite enjoyable to play, and undeserving of their current obscurity. NSM agreed and is offering updated editions of these flute-flute duets, as well as editions transcribed for flute and clarinet (browse under under Wind Ensembles or Clarinet).

  • lane.sevenrants nsmSeven Rants, by Peter Van Zandt Lane

    Contemporary Composition for Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Horn, Bassoon, and Piano, PDF $0.00

    Peter Van Zandt Lane was commissioned to compose this piece for the 67th Composers Conference and Chamber Music Workshop at Wellesley College, which took place in the summer of 2011.   The annual Conference is a wonderful two-week event, which brings together prominent young composers, superb professional musicians, dedicated amateur chamber musicians, and enthusiastic listeners.   The professional musicians premiere the composers' new works and also coach the amateur musicians in chamber ensembles. Concerts are free and open to the public.  For more information on the program, please visit the Composers Conference website.

    After the Conference each year, one of the composer fellows is selected to create a new work for the next year's chamber music workshop participants.   That composer returns the following summer to coach two groups of players on the new composition, in preparation for performances in the Saturday evening concerts of Week I and Week II.   Peter Van Zandt Lane's Seven Rants was an enormous success in 2011, absolutely loved by the players and received exceptionally well by the audience.   Written for flute, oboe, clarinet, horn, bassoon, and piano, Seven Rants is a series of seven delightful and diverse movements.  The first and last movements are strict palindromes.  The five middle movements or "rants" are "mini-concertos", each highlighting a different wind instrument.   Great fun to play, and highly accessible.

    With permission from both the composer and the Wellesley Composers Conference and Chamber Music Center, Noteworthy Sheet Music is thrilled to offer our customers a free PDF download of Seven Rants by Peter Van Zandt Lane.   And please check out more of this terrific young composer's work, including two other listings in the NSM catalog, Danzas Mecánicas and Transverse Fractures.

  • mcdonald.three four-note flute duets.image 240pxThree Four-Note Flute Duets, Op.448b, by John D. McDonald

    Contemporary Composition for Two Flutes, PDF $2.99

    "Composed for Ethel Farny and her flute students at the Rivers Music School, these short duets sprout initially from the first flute/violin duet of Several Strands, Op. 448a.  This Grazioso is indeed made from only four pitches. Similarly, Murmurando confines itself to a four-note knot until its final dyad.  The third duet, Con Eleganza, stretches the four-note concept a bit more. Each instrument has its own four-pitch pattern, and a coda leaves the four-note idea behind all together, concluding the set with six slower, somewhat more chromatic bars that could very well lead to future music of more emotional complexity.  Perhaps there will be more duets to come."    ― John McDonald, November 2009

    John McDonald is a member of The Mockingbird Trio, directs the Tufts Composers Concert Series, and serves on the boards of several performance organizations in New England.  He has recently fulfilled commissions from The Chamber Orchestra of Boston, pianist David Holzman, The Firebird Ensemble (for an Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music Residency, with support from a Meet the Composer MetLife Creative Connections Award), and the ANA Trio (Fredonia University; soprano, cello, and piano), among others.  Recent performances by McDonald at the Goethe Institut of Boston, at Tufts, and at many other venues have been highly acclaimed.

    The following is excerpted from John Pratt's © foreword:
    "In 1833, Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847) wrote two Concert Pieces for Clarinet, Basset Horn, and Piano, op. 113 and op. 114, as show-pieces for the famous clarinetist Heinrich Bärmann (1784-1847) to play with his up-and-coming son Karl (1811-1885) on the basset horn. // Mendelssohn's two Concert Pieces are very suitable for transcription, even aside from the rarity of the basset horn today. We provide, as well as the original clarinet part, transcriptions of it for flute and oboe. Transcriptions of the basset horn part are provided for bassoon, clarinet, and English horn. These primo and secondo parts can be mixed and matched at will. For the score, we use Mendelssohn's instruments rather than some other arbitrary pair. This enables anyone interested to check any transcribed part against the original. The score gives the parts in concert pitch, because a transposition would apply to only one of the possible winds, and because the pianist can then easily play any part at original pitch."

    Please note that PDFs of the original score and clarinet-primo part are available free of charge in the public domain (see the listing of this work on IMSLP.org), and our transcribed primo and secondo wind parts can readily be used with the original score. Therefore, you should purchase our Score and/or Clarinet-primo part only if you would like Mr. Pratt's concert pitch version of the score (for piano with clarinet and basset horn) and/or would like to take advantage of the price break provided by one of our complete trio editions.

    Transcribed for Flute, Clarinet, and Piano by John W. Pratt

    (originally for Violin, Viola, and Orchestra)

    Piano Score, Flute & Clarinet Parts, PDF $17.99

    Excerpted from the Foreword by J. W. Pratt:  "The idea that every piece, especially a major one, can be satisfactorily transcribed for whatever instruments one would like is one I firmly reject.  However, a trio arrangement of this Sinfonia Concertante for flute, clarinet, and piano can, I believe, capture and present in a new light many of the wonders of this great work, even the wonders of its sonorities..... In the arrangement here, the flute and clarinet almost always play either a solo part or an orchestral part with only octave changes..... For the piano, on the other hand, straightforward orchestral reduction is often ineffective and unsatisfying, and that would certainly be true here, even with the flute and clarinet taking some wind parts. I have attempted instead to find natural piano "orchestrations" as alternatives to Mozart's orchestral layouts, especially where the full orchestra is playing..... Such effects, often heightened on returns, are better suited to the piano's capabilities and its role as a member of a trio than a straightforward reduction would be..... The music available for flute, clarinet, and piano includes surprisingly few major works.   The purpose of our arrangement is to add a significant piece to this repertoire and to enable players and listeners to enjoy Mozart's magnificent Sinfonia Concertante in a new way."

  • nelson POL nsm-rPlay of Light, by Richard Nelson 

    Contemporary Composition for Flute (doubling piccolo & bass flute) and Harp

    Score and Flute Part, PDF $15.25

    Play of Light, for flute and harp, was written for the duo "2" (Peter H. Bloom and Mary Jane Rupert).  The piece is built around spaciousness, transparency, multi-hued shadings and playful chases.  The incorporation of bass flute and piccolo further enhances the inherently rich color possibilities of the flute/harp combination—the three flute instruments in succession form a sort of "super-flute" in the work's final section. 

     

    Drawing on his jazz and improvisation background, composer Richard Nelson in this composition leads the players into a substantial section that they complete through improvisation.  While they follow signposts on intensity, energy and pitch content that he provides, this practice nonetheless creates an element of intrigue and unpredictability that the composer values highly.  It also assures that each performance of the piece will have a strongly individual profile.

  • nicholson coolun 240pxCoolun, A favorite Irish Air with Four Variations, by C. Nicholson

    Gassett Collection - Facsimile Edition by Noteworthy Sheet Music

    Piano Score and Flute Part, PDF $9.99

    Charles Nicholson (1795-1837) was a masterful, hugely popular, and highly influential English flutist and teacher, famous for his individual style and powerful tone.  Among Nicholson's compositions are 13 fantasies and 15 airs with variations, including Coolun. A favorite Irish Air with Four Variations arranged for the Flute with an ad libitum Accompaniment for the Piano Forte, or Harp.  The "Coulin" or "Coolan" was described in an 1833 letter to the editor of the Dublin Penny Journal (www.libraryireland.com) as "an air, that once heard even in the earliest infancy, can never be forgotten—a melody which breathes the most touching tenderness and exquisite sensibility, and the memory of which, enables the Irish to hear Scotland's 'O, Nanny wilt thou gang with me,'—or her 'Banks and Braes,' without envious repinings."

    Nicholson's consummate rendition of Coolun is highly effective when played either as a solo for flute alone or by flute with accompaniment of piano, lever harp, or pedal harp.  The Gassett Collection print from which our facsimile was created consists of a score for piano forte and flute, without a separate flute part. The flute part included in our edition was created from the score using a modern music notation software program.  Click to preview p1 of the score.

    Noteworthy Sheet Music's publication of Coolun was favorably reviewed by Katherine Borst Jones in the January, 2014 issue of Flute Talk magazine.  You can read the review, reproduced on our website for your convenience, or at Flute Talk (subscribers).

    Carl Reinecke (1824-1910) was a renowned German pianist, composer, conductor, and teacher of composition.  He composed numerous works, and for over 35 years was a leader of the music scene in Leipzig.  Reinecke's Op.26 includes two songs for voice with accompaniment of violin and piano: No.1, Waldesgruss (The Forest's Greeting); and No.2, Frühlingsblumen (Spring Flowers). The vocal range of Reinecke's Op.26 lieder extends from C4 to A5, and thus is well-suited for either soprano or mezzo-soprano.

    Our edition contains an "enhanced" facsimile of the original score and violin part, plus new transcriptions of the violin part for either alto flute or flute.  Thus, the two songs may be performed utilizing the accompaniment of violin, alto flute, or flute, along with the voice and piano.  Alternatively, these pieces work very well as an instrumental arrangement with the voice part played on flute, accompanied by alto flute and piano.  Click here to preview p1 of the score.

    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.  Click to preview p1 of the Flute part.

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

    Concertantes Variations sur la Cavatina de Rossini, No.3

    Gassett Collection - Facsimile Edition by Noteworthy Sheet Music

    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.
