The Death of Melisande wins an honorable mention in the 2015 NFA Newly Published Music Competition!


We are proud to announce that The Death of Melisande by Jean Sibelius, arranged for Flute Orchestra by Shaul Ben-Meir, won an honorable mention in the 2015 NFA Newly Published Music Competition in the Flute Choir category! 

Arranged for flute orchestra (4 C flutes, 2 alto flutes, 2 bass flutes, contrabass flute)

Pelleas et Melisande is the incidental music in ten parts written in 1905 by Jean Sibelius for the dramatic play of Maurice Maeterlinck. Sibelius later rearranged the music into a nine movement suite, published as Op. 46, whcih has become one of his most popular concert works.

The "Death of Melisande" is the final movement of the suite, the conclusion of the tragic story of the doomed love affair.  This moving music lends itself well to the melodic and warm timbre of the flute orchestra.
