44 Duos arranged for Two Flutes [Playing score]


  • Highly recommended
  • Great for teachers

From the Publisher

Béla Bartók’s “44 Duos” for violins are a set of marvelous musical miniatures that draw on the composer’s love of Eastern European folk music. Ranging from easy to advanced standard, they have long been the province only of string players with arrangements first for cellos and more latterly for violas. Now they are available to delight flautists and will be ideal for recitals, either as a main program item or as encores, just as violinists have enjoyed them since their composition.

The pieces are divided into four books. The first two are intended to be easy, the third intermediate and the fourth of an advanced level. Their harmonic diversity and rhythmic freedom makes playing these duos on the flute a real delight and an enriching experience. Thanks to the development of the flute over the last four decades, especially in its speaking quality, flutes can now readily mathc the violins for whom the 44 Duos were originally composed.

Difficulty guide: 2-7
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
