Alphonse Leduc, Heugel, & Hamelle - Featured Products

This transcription of Three Pieces for cello and piano was composed between 1911 and 1913 and published by Heugel. The two initial pieces were originally written for organ: the first, in E flat minor, brings a moderate tempo to a melancholy cantilena with Romantic accents, while the second, in A minor, exudes warmth and tenderness. The third piece, in C sharp minor, most likely originally titled Danse espagnole, heralds the Roaring Twenties with its restlessness and festive crackle. Together they emit a charm that is difficult to resist.

Available Format: Sheet Music

From a recently discovered manuscript, which brings to light not only new pieces, but also certain works known up to now in a different form.

Volume two is also available here.

Available Format: Sheet Music

Available Format: Sheet Music

In this baroque composition, each sonata has a four-movement structure consisting of a prelude, a fugue, and a more binary tempo for the third and fourth parts. The partitas, with a structure close to the gigue, were slightly more varied due to the introduction of different elements. This transcription for the clarinet produced in 1953 by Ulysse Delécluse, a French clarinettist and professor, enables easier access to this repertoire for clarinettists.

Available Format: Sheet Music

A selection of melodies by Reynaldo Hahn for voice and piano.

Volumes 1-3 are also available here.
