Grand Quartet in e minor, Op103 for Four Flutes by Friedrich Kuhlau
Instrumentation: 4 c flutes
Score and parts
This newly-engraved reconstruction of the Grand Quartet in E minor, Op. 103 by Friedrich Kuhlau for Four C Flutes includes a full score and all four parts. It was created with a return to the original 1830 published material and comparisons with contemporary publications, most of which contain only handwritten facsimile or pre-1900s engraving. Numerous errors and inconclusively-placed notes have been clarified and dynamic and expressive markings consistently matched across parts and score. It is hoped that this freshly-engraved, clean edition allows for a new generation of flutists to more easily, and more satisfyingly, integrate this work into their repertoire.
I. – Andante maestoso-Allegro assai con molto fuoco
II. – Scherzo
III. – Adagio molto
IV. – Rondo
