Trio Sonata for 3 – 300 Flutes by John Lamontaine
Score and parts
Prior to 2018, the Trio Sonata of John La Montaine might as well have not existed. When ALRY Publications became the sole representative for Fredonia Press, this work was not mentioned in the catalogs, nor was any score or manuscript included in the Fredonia archives. Suddenly it resurfaced, a paper copy, bearing a handwritten inscription to Doriot Anthony Dwyer, with the subtitle “for 3 Flutes or 30 Flutes or 300 Flutes.” The new and freshly re-engraved edition, featuring a full score and parts, consists of three movements: Questioning (a trio version of the opening movement of his Sonata for Solo Flute), Song and Scherzo.
