Outstanding New Publications from Noteworthy Sheet Music
Musicians looking for fresh repertoire ideas can turn to Noteworthy Sheet Music, LLC. This publisher of uncommon, diverse, and high-quality sheet music announces recent additions to its online catalog.
Noteworthy Sheet Music offers several new publications for alto flute. First is a transcription of the Berceuse by Gabriel Fauré for alto flute and piano. Fauré composed his Berceuse (Op. 16) for violin (or cello) and piano in 1878-1879, and it remains one of his most beloved and popular works to this day. The piece is simple but beautiful—short, with a quiet sweet melody that appeals to both performers and audiences alike. Over the years the Berceuse has been transcribed for many other instruments;
The “3 Compositions for Violin and Piano, Op.40” by Amy Beach were first published in 1898. Written in the romantic style, the three pieces are (1) the beautiful but somber La Captive, (2) a lovely, lyrical Berceuse, and (3) a lively but still tender Mazurka. All three of these delightful compositions have been transcribed for alto flute and piano; in addition, the NSM edition includes a version of the Mazurka transcribed for flute and piano, for those wishing to give that option a try as well. http://www.noteworthysheetmusic.com/
The viola part from Sonata, Op.22 by Marion Bauer has also been transcribed for alto flute and recently published by Noteworthy Sheet Music. Marion Bauer was an extraordinary composer, editor, teacher, writer, and supportive colleague whose works deserve more attention by contemporary performing musicians. Peter H. Bloom created the alto flute transcription, based on Bauer’s own versions for viola and clarinet but incorporating several adaptive changes in tessitura, articulation, phrasing and dynamics to highlight the unique voice of the alto flute. Mr. Bloom’s transcription for alto flute has been performed often on concert tours by the duo “2” (flutist Bloom and pianist Mary Jane Rupert). http://www.noteworthysheetmusic.com/
