Rondo in D Major for Flute and Piano, K485
Pan - Journal of the British Flute Society
This is a highly convincing arrangement for flute and piano of a work originally written for piano. Dating from 1786-7, this piece takes its theme from JC Bach whom Mozart met in London as a child. The flute part is idiomatically arranged, and without knowing the original, one might imagine might it had been written with the flute in mind. The piano part is simple, taking mostly the left hand of the original, and leaving the flute to play all of the semiquaver runs. This helps to make it ideal for teachers who are second study pianists, or for young players to explore together. This is a well-presented edition and a welcome addition to the flutist's repertoire.
