NSM’s latest publication is Peter H. Bloom’s smashing transcription of Marion Bauer’s “Sonata”, Op.22, for alto flute. Duo “2” has been programming this piece on their recent concert tours, winning audience acclaim for the Bauer performances.
Check out NSM’s transcription of Amy Beach’s “3 Compositions” for alto flute and piano. Op.40 includes the beautiful but sombre “La Captive”, a lovely, lyrical “Berceuse”, and a lively but still tender “Mazurka”.
