Flute Part, PDF $9.98
Carl Maria von Weber (1786-1826), an important forerunner of the Romantic school, was a prolific composer, yet wrote only three substantial chamber works. One is the Grand Duo Concertant for clarinet (or violin) and piano. Sounding a bit like Mozart on steroids, with robust harmonies and brilliant passagework, it has three movements - an exciting Allegro con fuoco, a beautiful Andante with a very rich, chordal piano accompaniment and passionate piano interlude, and a sparkling Rondo.
