Score and Parts, PDF $9.99

François Devienne (1759-1803) was a French composer, flutist and bassoonist, as well as a professor at the Paris Conservatory. His compositional output included: 12 operas; many concerted pieces for various wind instruments, with orchestra; overtures; concertos, quartets, trios, sonatas, etc. for flute, piano, and other instruments; 12 suites; numerous romances, chansons, etc.; and an influential flute method book, Méthode de flûte (1795).  

Noteworthy Sheet Music published this edition of Devienne’s Sonata in D Major, Op.10, No.1 at the suggestion of flutist Richard A. Evans, who long ago obtained the duet from the Library of Congress and believed it undeserving of its current obscurity. We at NSM agreed that the duet, which has two movements, Allegro spirituoso and Rondo: Allegro poco presto, should be made more readily available to present-day musicians and audiences. Our edition provides both score and parts, and incorporates articulation and dynamic edits supplied by Mr. Evans.

Score, 10 pages; Flute-1 part, 5 pages; Flute-2 part 5 pages; Total, 24 pages.
