Score and Parts, PDF $11.25
Franz Anton Hoffmeister (1754-1812) was a German music publisher and prolific composer. He studied law in Vienna, but after becoming captivated by the music scene in that city he devoted the rest of his life to music. His compositional output includes numerous symphonies and overtures, operas, string quartets, pieces for piano, and a great many compositions for flute, including concertos and chamber works. Noteworthy Sheet Music's edition of Hoffmeister's Sonata in D minor, Op.50, No.3 was edited and notated by Richard A. Evans and Bronnie Stroud. Years ago, Mr. Evans located several original editions of 18th century flute compositions, long since out of print, at the Library of Congress. He found them quite enjoyable to play, and undeserving of their current obscurity. NSM agreed and is offering modern editions of these flute-flute duets, as well as Mr. Evans' flute-clarinet transcriptions of them (coming soon).
