    Musikalisches Opfer [Musical Offering] Volume III - Kanons [Canons]
    Bach, JS

    By means of the ten canonic movements, Bach exemplifies the various possibilities for the working out of the Thema Regium according to the strictest learned manner of imitative counterpoint, in the course of which the theme itself is subjected to a rhythmic-melodic metamorphosis. The canonic art of these movements returns to the model of the cycle of canons in Bach s personal copy of the Goldberg Variations which came to light in 1974. With the exception of No. 8, all the canons of the Musical Offering are notated in enigmatic form in the original print and require the correct resolution before they can be played. The original presents some movements as a closed group: canons 1 5 are so numbered, and form a sequence in the sense of increasing contrapuntal complexity, with the canonic fugue at their end.

    The remaining four canons are spread out through the original print, and certainly the primary consideration in this regard was to fill up the empty space. In relation to the sequence of canons 1 6, the two canones perpetui (No. 7 and 8) together with the two movements under the title Quaerendo invenietis (By searching you will find) (No. 9 and 10) inevitably form a second group.

    As lusus ingenii (intellectual games) the canons are primarily reading and thinking pieces, and only in two movements does the original print specify instrumental performance: No. 2 (two violins) and No. 8 (flute, violin, and continuo). The suggestions in this Barenreiter Urtext edition for instrumental performance of the canons, in contrast to ll previous arrangements, proceed from the principle that collected movements must be performable by the group of instruments specified directly or indirectly in the original. It is thus that the exclusive use of flute, 2 violins, continuo instruments and obbligato (preferably 2-manual) harpsichord results. The latter thereby takes the responsibility for all those voices which go beyond the range of flute and violin. The instruments are thus divided in such a way (following the model of canons No. 2 and 8) that account is taken of the contrast of settings between those voices that are bound to the theme and free contrapuntal voices. Where the range permits, the flute is always employed.

    With regard to the suggested instrumental performance of the canons, several alternative possibilities exist which fall within the bounds laid out above. Thus, fundamentally all the violin parts can be performed by a flute, and vice versa. Canon No. 1 can, moreover, be played by the two violins, although there is no case by Bach to serve as a precedent for such a violin duo.

    This edition includes a complete score (used by keyboardists) and pull-out parts for violin 1, violin 2, flauto traverso, and single-voice basso continuo.

    Beach, AC :: Theme and Variations for Flute and String Quartet, op. 80

    Theme and Variations for Flute and String Quartet, op. 80
    Beach, AC

    Amy Beach presents the Theme and Variations for flute and string quartet, op. 80.

    The theme, haunting and beautiful, had seven variations, each one exquisite in form. Technically, they were worthy the mettle of these star men [performers in the Chamber Music Society of San Francisco]. On the other hand, this notable work from a notable woman was worthily interpreted by this organization honored by the splendid American woman who has distinguished her sex and her country by her big achievements.

    The flute does not predominate, but blends with the strings, and the variations are so cleverly interwoven with fixed themes that they do not seem to be variations in the stereotyped sense. This blending of flute and strings is done so ingeniously that one is under the impression that the flute is not treated liberally enough, and only after some thought and investigation does one become acquainted with Mrs. Beach s clever scheme.

    in Shadow, light
    Benshoof, K

    'in Shadow, light', commissioned by Zart Dombourian-Eby, was composed in 1997, and premiered in Chicago at the National Flute Association convention the same year. Like many of Benshoof s other compositions, this piece uses classical textures and structural concepts, but includes idioms from folk, jazz, and popular music. Designed to integrate the distinct sounds of string instruments with that of the piccolo, in Shadow, light is a true chamber piece for piccolo and string trio, with responsibilities distributed equally between the instruments through contrapuntal textures and conversational interplay. A wide range of colors and expressive articulation from the piccolo completes the integration.

    Blank, A

    Notes in Autumn, Quintet for Flute and String Quartet, was completed in 2003. It is cast in three movements, each of which explores changing relationships between these five instruments. A short cadenza for the solo flute appears in the third movement. The first and third movements favor varying rhythmic configurations, the second, songlike, lyrical elements.

    It was during Boccherini's time in Spain that he wrote this present set of 6 quintets for flute and strings, listed by the composer in his autograph catalogue as Op. 17, opera piccola , and dated 1773. Boccherini s use of the diminutive reflects the intimate and small-scale nature of these works, each quintet being cast in two movements, in contrast to the more usual four-movement structure favoured by Boccherini s north European contemporaries.

    Ombres et Clartes [Shade and Light]

    Casterede, J

    From the publisher, Gerard Billaudot, Jacques Casterede’s ‘Ombres et clartes’ for flute and string trio is an advanced seven minute piece, in three movements (Allegro piacevole, Nocturne et immobile, Vivace, con spirito). Casterede’s style is characterized by the permanent notion of the melodic line, or even theme, and the use of confirmed rhythms. His extremely rich harmonic language is used in a completely personal manner Casterede states, "I started off with fairly traditional music of broadened tonality orienting myself towards increased structural freedom and more conscious coherence of language through the increasingly frequent use of modal, chromatic and diatonic movements." Jacques Casterede was a beloved 20th/21st century French composer and pianist.
