Includes score and parts
Flute 3/Eb Flute
Rick Pierce arranged this piece for The Nashua Flute Choir. This piece was performed at the National Flute Convention in Boston by The Nashua Flute Choir in August, 1993 and conducted by Rick Pierce.
The work was originally written in the order Andante, Allegro, Adagio, and Menuetto. It is more effective and more in keeping with most sonatas to play it in the order presented here (Andante, Menuetto, Adagio, Allegro). This arrangement was designed to give a solo opportunity to more than one player as the solo part has been placed in different parts in different movements. Flute 1 has the solo for the andante section of the first movement and the entire adagio (third) movement. Flute 2 has the solo on piccolo for the presto section of the first movement and on piccolo again for the entire allegro (fourth) movement. Flute 3 has the solo in the menuettos and because of the extreme range, an alternate Eb flute part has been included for the solo on the third movement only. The articulation was reviewed by Douglas Worthen.
