    Anderson, J :: The Colour of Pomegranates

    Julian Anderson’s The Colour of Pomegranates is a short nocturne for alto flute and piano, after the film of the same name by the Armenian director Paradjanov. In one part of the film a peasant sits on a cupola playing his flute to the accompaniment of church bells from below; in my piece this image is translated into the slow, lyrical melody played by the alto flute, while the piano provides the bells. The piece uses few special effects, save overblowing to produce chords of harmonics towards the close.

    Score only; no separate part available. Duration: 7’30.

    Cello Suites: Volume 1

    Bach, JS

    Carla Rees presents this arrangement of the Bach Cello Suites for solo alto flute.

    Arrangements of one kind or another have been at the heart of alto flute repertoire since Boehm's own arrangements of well-known works at the time of the instrument's development in the mid 1850s. For an instrument that lacks its own repertoire before the mid nineteenth century, adapting earlier works provides both useful practice material and a broader range of musical material.

    This adaptation of the Cello Suites, by Carla Rees, is formed from studying various printed sources, including facsimiles of the four versions of the composer s manuscript, with slight modifications made to suit a single line instrument and the idiosyncrasies of the alto flute. Articulations are based on those found in the source material, but may be altered to suit the interpretation and requirements of the individual player, as is commonly the case with performances by different cellists. Double stopping has been represented by grace notes, which may be allowed more time or omitted altogether depending on the skill and tastes of the performer. Where two notes appear simultaneously in the score, this is to indicate a possible ossia for instruments with a B (F sharp) footjoint, and players of the standard alto flute should always follow the upper notes.

    For advanced players.

    Siciliano (Reimagined)

    Bach, JS

    Inspired by one of the flute repertoire's loveliest melodies, Siciliano (Reimagined) is a gently adapted 'jazz flavored' setting of the slow movement from Bach's Sonata in E-flat Major. Solo parts are provided for both C flute and for alto flute. With a fairly close rendering of the authentic flute line and more contemporary chords in the piano part, Siciliano (Reimagined) is an inviting way to play music with a modernized jazz sound, while reading traditional classical notation.

    <

    Arrangements of one kind or another have been at the heart of alto flute repertoire since Boehm's own arrangements of well-known works at the time of the instrument's development in the mid 1850s. For an instrument that lacks its own repertoire before the mid nineteenth century, adapting earlier works provides both useful practice material and a broader range of musical material.

    This adaptation of the violin Sonatas and Partitas is formed from studying various printed sources, including a facsimile of the composer s manuscript, with slight modifications made (especially in the Fugue movements) to suit a single line instrument and the idiosyncrasies of the alto flute. Articulations are based on those found in the source material, but may be altered to suit the interpretation and requirements of the individual player, as is commonly the case with violin performances. Double stopping has been represented by grace notes, which may be allowed more time or omitted altogether depending on the skill and tastes of the performer.

    Although intended for the alto flute (and transposed so that when played on the alto flute the music sounds in the original key), these arrangements may also be played on other members of the flute family.

    Beglarian, E :: I Will Not Be Sad In This World

    Based on an Armenian troubadour song, I WILL NOT BE SAD IN THIS WORLD is a uniquely beautiful work for alto flute (or bass flute) accompanied by a pre-recorded audio track made purely from the composer’s own singing. The result is a fluid interplay between the live flute and the composer’s multi-tracked and processed vocal sonorities. The work was created for Marya Martin’s Eight Visions collection (published by Presser), and is now available as a single publication.

    Please note this publication includes a score only and no separate flute part.

The two central sections explore totally different moods and character, the 2nd somewhat on the lighter side, the 3rd, searching.

    Lament
    Bliss, M

    Marilyn Bliss presents Lament, written for alto flute (or flute).

    From the composer:

    'The genesis of Lament, written in 1984, was a recollection of an early Martha Graham dance entitled Lamentation, in which the dancer sits on the floor and stretches her elastic jersey costume about her body with her feet and hands. I was impressed not only by the sad, isolated, wrenching mood of the dance, but also by its focus and its exploration of a single idea. Concurrent with this memory was a desire to write a new piece for solo flute, and a realization of the great beauty of sound that exists in the alto flute.'

    Bost-Sandberg, L :: when it rains / the river stands still

    Lisa Bost-Sandberg presents when it rains / the river stands still for solo alto flute.

    From the composer: "This piece was composed to be performed on my Master of Arts degree recital as well as my alto flute lecture-recitals. The title is a two-line poem I wrote to evoke a moment that included a stunning view of the Iowa River in a rainfall. Singing and playing simultaneously is explored in this work as a connection between voice and flute is particularly strong with the alto. The alto flute fits the vocal range more agreeably than the higher-pitched concert flute, and as Theobald Boehm wrote of his invention in The Flute and Flute Playing, ‘Because of the great facility for modulation of the full, sonorous tones of this flute, it is adapted to music in the song style, and for accompanying a soprano voice.’ Circular breathing is required for a short portion of this piece."

    Duration: 5’30. For the advanced player.
