We provide a newly-typeset edition of Danzi’s Grande Sonate, Op.62, edited and with a few ossias suggested by John Pratt to embellish the basset horn part. The original publication, from around 1823, doesn’t include a full score, is difficult to read, and contains several errors; so, we hope players will appreciate having access to a newly-notated, easy to read modern edition.
NSM re-notated the flute and piano version of Wilhelm Popp’s Gruß an Ungarn (Greetings to Hungary), first published in 1899. With a decidedly Hungarian sentiment, this piece is great fun to play and provides an enjoyable, exciting listen for audiences as well.
Alexander Glazunov’s Elegy, Op.44, was written for viola and piano in 1893. The lovely viola melody is readily adaptable for other instruments, and we’ve just published John Pratt’s transcriptions for flute or alto flute.
Check out the new video from The Museum of Fine Arts Boston, featuring NSM’s contributing editor Peter H. Bloom performing on the Museum’s five-key crystal flute (1837) made by Claude Laurent.

Clara Schumann’s Three Romances, Op.22 are nicely adaptable to wind instruments, and especially lovely on either alto flute or flute. The pieces are melodic and expressive, epitomizing the Romantic era. They also represent true chamber music in the sense that both instruments are featured comparably, rather than the piano having a mere accompaniment role. Check out our new edition that includes parts for both alto flute and flute.
