4 Short Pieces, by Frank Bridge
Transcribed for Flute or Alto Flute (and Piano) by J.W.Pratt
Flute Part, Alto Part, PDF $8.99
The 4 Short Pieces by Frank Bridge were written for violin and piano, and first published in 1912. As noted in John Pratt's foreword to the edition, they "provide a fine and delightful introduction to an accessible post-romantic composer who should be better known." The pieces are "Meditation", "Spring Song", "Lullaby", and "Country Dance". Mr. Pratt has created transcriptions of the violin parts for both flute and alto flute, and we include both instrument versions in this edition. We think Nos. 1 and 3 sound particularly nice on the alto flute and No. 4 is a splendid romp on the C flute, but all four are effective on either instrument, so we prefer to let our flutists decide on which instrument they choose to play each piece. We provide only our flute and alto flute transcriptions; the piano score, including the original violin part, is available as a free pdf download at imslp.org.
