Flute and Piano Arrangements
Franz Joseph Strauss is best known today as the father of the great German composer Richard Strauss. His
Nocturno, op. 7, originally for horn and piano, adapts beautifully to the flute’s natural and direct lyricism, and makes a delightful addition to the recital repertoire.
This arrangement of Tchaikovsky’s Nocturne and Humoresque, op. 10, is completely natural, given the ability of the flute to achieve consummate delicacy in the Nocturne, and lighthearted playfulness in the Humoresque.These delights make perfect encore pieces, or lend the ideal touch of charm needed for the flutist’s recital program.
Kodály’s soulful and distinctive Adagio, originally for violin and piano, displays the dark, serious tone one might associate with the music of Brahms or Mahler.
Rich harmonies, large-scale sonorities, and
contemplative, passionate melody emphasize the low octave of the flute. This piece challenges the flutist to develop tonal and lyrical skills to the fullest.
Tchaikovsky’s beautifully haunting Nocturne, adapted from the Six Morceau op. 19 for piano (1873) and frequently played on cello, is the perfect piece for flute in the original key of D minor. This radiant, lovely work is attractive to all levels of players and audiences.
Fileuse (“TheSpinner”), from Fauré’s famous “Pelléas et Mélisande.” receives a fresh, sparkling, and highly virtuosic setting in this
Papillon (“Butterfly,” 1884)
is a popular showpiece originally for cello and piano. The character of this music is perfectly suited to the lithe and charismatic nature of the flute, and
guaranteed to delight audiences and challenge flutists of all levels.
These are well-known masterpieces which adapt extremely well for flute and piano. Published by Theodore Presser.
