Schubert’s “Der Hirt auf dem Felsen” works beautifully as an instrumental arrangement for alto flute (taking the vocal line), clarinet or alto flute obbligato, and piano. NSM's alto flute transcription is excellent concert material as well as the perfect pedagogical device.
Noteworthy Sheet Music has just published the “Snow Pond Composers Workshop Anthology—New Music for Flute 2015”, featuring works by Elliott Schwartz, Edward Jacobs, Richard Nelson, and 8 up-and-coming composers. Available in PDF or print edition.
P.H.Bloom’s new composition, From the Drawer for Tenor or Soprano, with Flute (doubling Piccolo), Clarinet, Bassoon, and Horn, is an emotional musical setting for the powerful and poignant text of the 1923 poem by Cavafy. Sheet music available from NSM.
