The Moldau

By Bedrich Smetana

http://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/the-moldau-sheet-music/6675622

Flute Ensemble 4 flutes
Composed by Bedrich Smetana (1824-1884). Edited by du Cheyron. Sheet Music. Published by Zimmermann (PE.ZM31480).

Item Number: PE.ZM31480

ISBN M-010-31480-8.

The Moldau is Smetana's most famous and most popular composition. The adaptation presented here is restricted to the essential contrasting motifs. On account of the original arrangement for flutes, the beginning takes up a lot of space as it symbolizes ho w the two rivers rise and meet. Many flutists who love the piece but do not have the chance to play it in an orchestra even once will benefit from the possibility of a chamber music edition. It is of intermediate difficulty and also well-suited as an enco re.

  • February 02, 2012 Good piece, but hard for player

    It is often arranging a famous melody, and it's easy to match, but it'll be spout packing for a player, so work hard on the played side.

    A favorite classic loved by all! Performances with quartets and flute choirs. Lower technically challenging parts can be split. Upper parts are beautifully melodic but technically easier. Great arrangement.

  • May 01, 2008 Very nice, but will take some work

    This is a beautiful, familiar melody. It will take some work to get the runs coordinated, but it will be beautiful.
