NEW EDITIONS

 

BERNHARD ROMBERG (1767-1841), CONCERTO in B Minor for Flute & Orchestra, Op. 17 - now owned by Elaine Baker D'Angelo (elaine.plymouthmusic@gmail.com) LOOK AT A SAMPLE

Winner 1994 NFA Newly Published Music Competition.
"This is not only a 'must-have', but also a 'why haven't we heard of this before' piece of music. Romberg's Concerto is wonderful fun and fills the large gap in flute concertos from the Beethoven era. This edition is clear, well-edited and well-transcribed for flute and piano. Highly recommended." Robert Bigio, Pan (Journal of the British Flute Society)


"This wonderful discovery nicely fills that missing gap in the flute literature between Mozart and Reinecke. The score of this fine work was never published, but, working from a set of parts, John Wion .. has painstakingly labored to bring us a modern edition with piano accompaniment of this long lost treasure from the 19th Century. Romberg was a well-known composer in his time, concertizing with Beethoven, playing with the Elector's orchestra in Bonn, and eventually serving as Kapplemeister to the King of Prussia in Berlin (Quantz and C.P.E. Bach had preceded him).
Romberg's Concerto is challenging to the flutist but delightful to the listener with strong themes, clear structure, and surprising harmonic variety. This work is full of power and pathos, virtuosity and elegance of melody. The style recalls the best portions of Schubert's Variations, the depth of Beethoven's Romances for Violin, the wit and charm of Rossini, and the opulent chromaticism of Spohr. The piano reduction by Elaine Baker is well balanced and interesting yet very idiomatic and playable at the keyboard. This is a major work that deserves wider recognition. It should be much more frequently heard, and deserves to be on the audition lists for major competitions. Mr. Wion has also released a recording of this work on his CD: "John Wion Plays Bernhard Romberg", which also includes Romberg's Divertimento and Quintet with strings." JEP, The Flute Network
