    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."

    Eugène Walckiers studied composition at the Paris Conservatoire with Anton Reicha and became a masterful, inventive, and prolific composer and arranger of 19th century chamber music.  Both his original compositions and his arrangements are deeply significant in their expression of a particular, highly developed aesthetic approach.  Walckiers' 2me Livre de Duos pour 2 Flutes, Opus 11, was dedicated to his friend Théodore Baltazaro and comprises three duets of three movements each.  NSM has re-notated all of the Opus 11 duets using a modern music composition software program.  Click to preview p1 of the score for Duo 1, Duo 2, or Duo 3.   

    A review written by Katherine Borst Jones was published in the September, 2013 issue Flute Talk magazine.  "The publication contains extensive notes and material on the composer.  The second duet is great material for sightreading as well as studying the 19th century style of composition. Printed as flute 1 and flute 2, separately, the copy is clear and easy to read."  Click to read the full review

    Eugène Walckiers (1793-1866) studied composition at the Paris Conservatoire with Anton Reicha and became a masterful, inventive, and prolific composer and arranger of 19th century chamber music.  Walckiers was also a flutist, having been a protégé of the legendary Tulou.  Rockstro, in his Treatise on the Flute (London, 1889), paid great tribute to Walckiers when he wrote: "The duets, trios and quartets of Walckiers belong to the highest school of French art, and prove their composer to have been a man of real genius.  They are exceedingly imaginative, occasionally rather eccentric, yet always elegant, charming, and scholarly."

    Rosamund Plummer wrote an independent review of Noteworthy Sheet Music's edition of Walckiers' Duetto 1 which was reproduced on the NSM website after first being published by Flute Focus.   

    Congratulations from NSM to flutists Jason Ng & Campbell Wang who won a Gold Award in the Secondary Duet Class of the 2012 New Zealand Woodwind Competition for their performance of Duetto I from Eugène Walckiers' 5th Book of Duets... well done!

    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.  Click to preview p1 of the Flute part.

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

    Transcribed for Flute and Piano by John. W. Pratt

    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.  This flute transcription of the Weber clarinet part is an NSM favorite; click to preview p1.  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

    Flute part, 10 pages; Total, 12 pages.

    Carl Maria von Weber's Grande Polonaise, Op.21 was written originally for piano solo.  The piece was composed in 1808 and first published in 1815.  The Gassett Collection of 19th century flute music contains an edition of this piece arranged anonymously as a duet for two flutes, along with a flute duet version of Weber's Polacca Brillante in E major, Op.72, which we also offer.  We re-notated the flute arrangement of the Grande Polonaise and offer this new edition, which includes a score at no extra charge, as well as the two flute parts.

    Flute 1 part, 4 pages; Flute 2 part, 4 pages; Fl1/Fl2 Score, 10 pages; Total, 24 pages.

    Carl Maria von Weber (1786-1826) was a German piano virtuoso and prolific composer who made major, influential contributions to many kinds of music and is widely credited with being a founder of the Romantic school.  Weber's rousing Polacca Brillante in E major, Op.72 (alternatively known as L'Hilarité or Grande Polonaise brillante) was written originally for piano solo.  It was composed and first published in 1819, and was later transcribed by Liszt for piano and orchestra.

    We came across an anonymous arrangement of this piece, a duet for two flutes, among the print copies included in the Gassett Collection.  The duet is great fun for flutists, so we created a renotated edition of the arrangement, with the goal of modernizing the format and correcting some likely inaccuracies.  Our new edition includes a score at no extra charge as well as the two flute parts.

    Charles Nicholas Weiss was the son and pupil of the well-known flutist and composer Carl Weiss.  After a stint in accounting, Charles began his music career as a flutist, teacher and composer in Italy and later settled in London.  He published an acclaimed flute method book (Methodical Instruction-book, Op. 50) and composed a great deal of music, most now forgotten and unavailable.  Weiss' favorite trio, A Grand Trio for Three Flutes, Concertante, Op. 102, was dedicated to his brother, the flute professor and music publisher Willoughby G. Weiss.  We have re-notated the parts and created a score using a modern music notation software program. This is an easy-to-intermediate level piece.  

     Score, 17 pages; Flute 1/2/3 parts, 8/6/4 pages of music; Total, 43 pages.
