Eugène Walckiers (1793-1866) studied composition at the Paris Conservatoire with Anton Reicha and became a masterful, inventive, and prolific composer and arranger of 19th century chamber music.  Walckiers was also a flutist, having been a protégé of the legendary Tulou.  Rockstro, in his Treatise on the Flute (London, 1889), paid great tribute to Walckiers when he wrote: "The duets, trios and quartets of Walckiers belong to the highest school of French art, and prove their composer to have been a man of real genius.  They are exceedingly imaginative, occasionally rather eccentric, yet always elegant, charming, and scholarly."

Rosamund Plummer wrote an independent review of Noteworthy Sheet Music's edition of Walckiers' Duetto 1 which was reproduced on the NSM website after first being published by Flute Focus.   

Congratulations from NSM to flutists Jason Ng & Campbell Wang who won a Gold Award in the Secondary Duet Class of the 2012 New Zealand Woodwind Competition for their performance of Duetto I from Eugène Walckiers' 5th Book of Duets ... well done!

Carl Maria von Weber (1786-1826) was a German piano virtuoso and prolific composer who made major, influential contributions to many kinds of music and is widely credited with being a founder of the Romantic school.  Weber's rousing Polacca Brillante in E major, Op.72 (alternatively known as L'Hilarité or Grande Polonaise brillante) was written originally for piano solo.  It was composed and first published in 1819, and was later transcribed by Liszt for piano and orchestra.

We came across an anonymous arrangement of this piece, a duet for two flutes, among the print copies included in the Gassett Collection.  The duet is great fun for flutists, so we created a renotated edition of the arrangement, with the goal of modernizing the format and correcting some likely inaccuracies.  Our new edition includes a score at no extra charge as well as the two flute parts.

Fl1/Fl2 Score, 8 pages; Flute 1 part, 4 pages; Flute 2 part, 4 pages; Total, 22 pages.

Charles Nicholas Weiss was the son and pupil of the well-known flutist and composer Carl Weiss.  After a stint in accounting, Charles began his music career as a flutist, teacher and composer in Italy and later settled in London.  He published an acclaimed flute method book (Methodical Instruction-book, Op. 50) and composed a great deal of music, most now forgotten and unavailable.  Weiss' favorite trio, A Grand Trio for Three Flutes, Concertante, Op. 102, was dedicated to his brother, the flute professor and music publisher Willoughby G. Weiss.  We have re-notated the parts and created a score using a modern music notation software program. This is an easy-to-intermediate level piece.  

 Score, 17 pages; Flute 1/2/3 parts, 8/6/4 pages of music; Total, 43 pages.
