Flute duets! Several worthy 18th century duets for two flutes, long out of print and recently resurrected by flutist Richard A. Evans, are being published by NSM. Check out our listing for the first of these new editions, Franz Anton Hoffmeister's Sonata in D minor, Op.50, No.3.
NSM is delighted to welcome Lydia Kakabadse to our family of contemporary composers who contribute to our catalog. Please click to read about her piece Russian Tableaux for string quartet, a truly lovely, moving work that we’ve just published. There’s also a link to the composer’s website, where you can listen to audio samples of the three movements.
NSM announces its first publication of a composition written by Walter Finlayson. Moon Shadows, thought by the composer's daughter to have been composed in the late 1930's or early 1940's, is scored for two flutes, two B♭ clarinets, bass clarinet, bells, vibraphone, xylophone, finger cymbals, maracas, bongos, roll cymbals, temple blocks, and tympani. It's a very interesting piece, so please check out the listing for additional information about Moon Shadows and the composer.
Congratulations to Ben Robichaux on the highly successful premiere of his work Recurrence for flute (Kenneth Cox) and piano (Bronwyn Schuman)! The performance was recorded and we've posted a link to a sample audio clip in our listing article, so check it out.
This highly-acclaimed, award-winning CD was recorded by D.C. Hall's New Concert and Quadrille Band and features tenor soloist Kevin M’Dermott. The stellar group reprises the repertoire, style, and spirit of the illustrious Hall Brothers' Band, performing a broad array of music popular in America from the late 1840s through the 1870s.
