Piano Score and Alto Flute Part, PDF $3.99
Hauptmann's 3 Violin Duos, Op.16 were first published in 1832. The Lento (Bereavement) from Op.16 later was arranged for violin and piano by the renowned violinist, violist, and composer Heinrich Wilhelm Ernst. It is this arrangement by Henri Ernst, published in 1880, that served as the basis for NSM’s transcription of the piece for alto flute and piano. The mournful simplicity of the Lento is perfectly captured and beautifully rendered by the alto flute.
