This is the First Publication of Bacon's delightful collection of pieces for flute, clarinet, and bassoon. Each mpvement bears a descriptive title, often whimsical, and a subtitle usually related to the form of the piece. This set is a welcome addition to the repertoire for this ensemble.
Boris Koutzen had a distinguished career as a violinist, composer, conductor, and teacher. He played for many years with the Philadelphia Orchestra and the NBC Symphony before becoming the head of the violin department and director of the orchestra at Vassar College. His Music for Saxophone, Bassoon, and Cello, composed in 1945, won a composition contest sponsored by BMI.
Toch wrote this miniature masterpiece in 1955 and it was published shortly thereafter, but the work has been long out of print. I am very proud to be able issue a new edition of the Sonatinetta, op. 84, and would like to thank the composer's grandson, Dr. Lawrence Weschler, for his kind permission to do so.
Mrs. Beach was the foremost woman composer in the the United States during the first half of the twentieth century. She wrote these delightful works for Flute, Cello, and Piano in 1921. This is the first publication of her Opus 90.
This beautiful late Romantic work has been long out of print. Blanc was well known as a composer of chamber music, and this piece confirms his reputation. Reminiscent of an operatic Bel Canto duet, it should be in the repertoire of every oboist or hornist.
This four-movement work epitomizes French Romanticism. Composed by a student of Flotow and Saint-Saëns, it is one of the first French trios for this combination written by a composer who was not herself an oboist or bassoonist. This is the first modern edition of this piece, now available for the first time in over one hundred years.
This is the First Edition of this trio for Bb Clarinet, Bassoon, and Piano. Written when the composer was 18 years old, this is NOT a part of the later Trio in G minor, but a free-standing work.
This original work for oboe, bassoon, and piano is based on themes by Albert Gottlieb Methfessel (1785-1869). The wind writing is idiomatic for both instruments and the entire work displays Jancourt's melodic gift. A great addition to any trio's repertoire!
This exciting three-movement work was commissioned by the International Horn Society and W. Peter Kurau, who succeeded Reynolds as Horn Professor at the Eastman School of Music.
This wonderful piece by the Swiss harpsichordist and composer Marguerite Roesgen-Champion is scored for alto saxophone, bassoon, and harpsichord or piano. The four movements explore a variety of musical styles and influences.
A three-movement work by Czech-American composer Alexandre Rudajev. This fine work provides a nice alternative to the piano reduction of the Hindemith Concerto, and is much kinder to the pianist.
