2nd Quartet, Op70 by Eugene Walckiers
Edited by Peter van Munster
General Editor: Ruien de Reede
For 4 C Flutes
SCORE ONLY; separate parts are not available
The compositions of the French flautist and composer Eugène Walckiers are unjustifiably neglected. His flute music (which includes works for flute and strings, flute and piano, duos, trios and two quartets) is written in a highly personal and interesting style, imbued with the unconventional spirit that characterises certain compositions by Berlioz and Liszt. Indeed, all three of them studied composition with Anton Reicha, who had most unorthodox ideas about composing. The second quartet for four flutes was frequently on the programme of the great French flautist Marcel Moyse during his summer courses in Boswil. This edition makes the score and parts of Walckiers' second quartet available for the first time.
