    The virtuoso Italian flutist Giulio Briccialdi (1818-1881) was a captivating performer and a brilliant and prolific composer of works for the flute.  His compositions became highly popular among flutists and include several concerti and numerous duets, caprices, fantasies, and etudes.  He served as professor of flute at the Academy of St. Cecilia in Rome and later at the Florence Conservatoire.  A proponent of the Boehm flute, Briccialdi is best known today for his invention of the Briccialdi B-flat thumb key and for his variation on the Carnival of Venice, "Il Carnevale di Venezia" (Op.78).  We offer here our facsimile edition of his charming, challenging, and otherwise unavailable Fantaisie pour la Flûte sur des motifs de l'opera La Sonnambula de Bellini (Op.110).  Click to preview p1 of the score.

  • Cambini Op5No1 fl-cl nsmSonata in D Major, Op.5, No.1, by Giuseppe Maria Cambini

    Transcribed for Flute and B-flat Clarinet by R.A.Evans
    Score and Parts, PDF $7.99

    Giuseppe Maria Cambini (1746-1825) was an Italian-born violinist and composer.  He was one of the most prolific composers of his era, particularly of instrumental works, of which he wrote over 600, including numerous symphonies, 149 string quartets and over 100 trios, as well as ballets, operas, & oratorios.  Flutists will know him for his concertos and extensive body of chamber works featuring the flute, including duos, trios, quartets and quintets.


    Cambini wrote his Sonata in D Major, Op.5, No.1 for two flutes, and Noteworthy Sheet Music has published a re-notated version of the flute duet at the suggestion of flutist Richard A. Evans, who long ago obtained the music from the Library of Congress and believed it undeserving of its current obscurity.  Aware of the scarcity of music composed for flute-clarinet duos, Mr. Evans also initiated this flute-clarinet edition of Cambini's Sonata in D Major by transcribing the flute-2 part for clarinet in B-flat. We at NSM agreed that the Op.5, No.1 duet should be made more readily available to present-day musicians and audiences, in both the flute-flute and flute-clarinet versions.  Our editions provide both scores and parts, and incorporate articulation and dynamic edits supplied by Mr. Evans.

    Score, 8 pages; Flute part, 4 pages; B-flat Clarinet part 4 pages; Total, 22 pages.

    Note that Cambini's Opus 5 flute duets were made into trios by the addition of a bass part composed by Thomas Billington. A PDF scan of the trio edition for two flutes and continuo arranged by Billington is available at IMSLP.org as Cambini's 6 Duos for Two Flutes, Opus 11 (London, printed for Longman & Broderip, n.d.).
