Czech composer Antonín Dvořák based his Romance, Opus 11 on the slow movement of his String Quartet in F minor, composed in 1873, re-working that Andante con moto quasi allegretto to create two versions of the Romance, one for violin solo and orchestra (B.39) and another for violin solo and piano (B.38).

The Romance is one of Dvořák's most magnificent melodic works, teaming with romance, lyricism, and emotional intensity.  Understandably, the piece became extremely popular and has been transcribed for several other instruments, including viola, cello, guitar, flute, and clarinet.  The folks at NSM thought the Romance might be nicely adaptable for flute choir, and created this new arrangement, scored for solo concert flute accompanied by four concert flutes, two alto flutes, two bass flutes, and one contrabass flute.  A few changes have been incorporated in the solo part, bringing the violin's lowest notes into flute range and providing appropriate alternatives to the occasional double stops.  Likewise, the various string and wind parts created by Dvořák for his orchestral arrangement have been modified in places to suit members of the flute family.  Of course, any work will sound very different when played by a flute choir than when played by an orchestra, but in arranging this piece for flutes, every effort has been made to maintain the spirit, character, balance, and flow of Dvořák's exquisite Romance.
