    Bloom_head_shot_orchid_SilpakornChaconne, BWV 1004, by J. S. Bach

    Transcribed for Flute or Alto Flute by Peter H. Bloom, PDF $9.98

    The Chaconne BWV 1004, originally from Johann Sebastian's Suite in D minor for unaccompanied violin, is among the most challenging, controversial, enigmatic, and magnificent works known. This transcription by Peter H. Bloom was created for unaccompanied alto flute in G or concert flute in C. Mr. Bloom is motivated by an interest in historical performance practice, devotion to the art of improvisation, fascination with the technique of the flute and alto flute, and an abiding love of this masterpiece of Bach's. As well as transposing and digitally engraving the original version of the Chaconne, Mr. Bloom provides practical, effective, and cogent performer's solutions to the many interpretive challenges that occur throughout this work.  Click to preview a page of the Bach Chaconne

  • Bach - Toccata, Adagio, and Fugue - Piano

    JP_at_piano_11.11.10.croppedToccata, Adagio, and Fugue, BWV 564, by J. S. Bach 

    Transcribed for Piano by John W. Pratt, PDF $14.84

    BWV 564 is unusual among Bach's big organ works.  It has a middle movement, an Adagio with an elaborate and gorgeous melody which can benefit greatly from the piano's shaded, nuanced dynamics and articulation.  The fugue, too, is atypical - light and lighthearted, well suited to the piano, with a fading coda that is if anything harder to treat convincingly on the organ than on the piano.  The exuberant Toccata is also highly effective and fun to play on the piano.  Click to preview p1 of the score for Bach's Toccata, Adagio, and Fugue for piano.

  • Brahms - Var. on a Theme of R. Schumann - Piano

    brahmsVariations on a Theme of Robert Schumann, Op.23, by J. Brahms

    Transcribed for Piano Solo by John W. Pratt, PDF $19.75

    Brahms wrote his beautiful Variationen über ein Thema von Robert Schumann for piano four hands, but essentially all the musical ideas are captured in this transcription for solo piano. The variations range from delicately decorative to spectral to warmly Brahmsian to bravura and even witty. The last, suffused with sadness, solemnity, resignation, and reaffirmation, combines a funeral march with the theme, which is known as Schumann's last idea because it came to him at night shortly before his attempted suicide and final commitment to an asylum.

  • Li Qi - Fog - Flute Alone

    LiQi Fog nsmFog, by Li Qi


    Contemporary Composition for Solo Flute, PDF $5.99

    Fog was written in 2012 by the up-and-coming young composer Li Qi.  In addition to receiving other projects and awards, Li Qi was selected by the Wellesley Chamber Music Workshop to compose the program's commissioned piece for 2016, An Autumn Dusk in the Mountains for flute1, flute2/alto flute, cello, and piano.


    Short, interesting, and challenging, Fog will appeal to advanced flutists and their audiences. Inspired by the poem "Stray Birds" by Rabindranath Tagore, the piece strives to capture in a musical way the recurring interplay between fog and sunlight, as a representation of the circle of life with all its sorrow, joy, and continuously-unfolding beauty.  A recording of a 2012 performance of Fog by Heath White at the Jacobs School of Music, Indiana University, has been posted on YouTube; please click the link to listen.

  • Schubert - Sonata in C Major - Piano

    schubert.sonata in c major nsmSonata in C Major, D.613, by Franz Schubert

    Completion by John W. Pratt

    Piano Score, PDF $7.99

    Schubert's D.613 consists of two unfinished movements in C major. The first, in sonata form, includes an entire exposition of 86 bars and 35 bars of development ending in a dramatic turn toward E major.  We complete this beautiful movement here by adding, in Schubert's style, a suitably proportioned return to C major, a regular recapitulation with a modified bridge passage, and a new coda looking toward the heavenly Adagio in E major commonly assumed to be the intended slow movement to follow.

    The noted Schubert scholar Brian Newbould wrote the following to Mr. Pratt regarding his completion of D.613: "I find your arguments for completing the piece in the way you do perfectly convincing..... As for the completion itself, I've read and played it through a few times and it runs well.  You have fulfilled your aims, in just about as self-effacing a way as you can - which is clearly your hope."

    Piano score, 8 pages; Total, 12 pages.
