Where to find sheet music for flute?

Post by SaxyShanny » Thu Feb 11, 2010 10:40 am

Hey flutie players! Can you all help me by pointing me in the right direction to where I can buy some of the solo pieces like Chamiade, and Hoovers 'Winter Spirits'? There are others, like the ones that are most popular among players and the ones that are discussed here a lot. Or if anyone wants to make copies and send them to me, that would even be better (I'll pay shipping!) ;) ;) ;)

Thank you all so much! This message board has been unbelievably helpful to me in my flute playing in these last couple of months! I also want to thank you all for being so kind to all the posters, unlike the Sax message board, they are so cruel there is sickens me and I cannot even bear the though thought of asking any questions for the fear that I will be called ridiculous names and made to feel like a pee-on (pardon the language but that is exactly how they have made me feel there in the past!)

SO! I am especially looking for :
Chaminade
Hoover's Winter Spirits & Kokopeli
Mozart's Magic Flute Overture
Reineke's Undine

or any others that are recommended!

Thank you all again!

Okay. So I had two reactions to this post.

This was my first one:

Then when my sarcastic streak fizzled out, I had this reaction:

I can see it being a problem if you don't know where to go, and no one really to turn to. So I can sympathize. Aside from the first result at the link above, here is a pretty good link:

Fluteworld: http://www.fluteworld.com

And pardon my sarcasm. I just couldn't help it. :lol: :twisted:

Google is your friend often :)

BTW, no need to buy if it's in the public domain and you have a printer :)

Good luck finding what you are looking for!

OMG fluteguy my bassman does that to me all the time!! I tell him NO LOL NO! :)- It's all good! So I looked at sheetmusicplus.com and I dont know who wrote chaminade, there was a lady with the last name Chaminade:

http://www.sheetmusicplus.com/instrumen ... =Chaminade

And for Hoover:

http://www.sheetmusicplus.com/instrumen ... spirits%27

http://www.sheetmusicplus.com/instrumen ... =Kokopelli

as you can see from these links, sheetmusicplus.com is NOT my friend :)

Thanks tho!

Umm... Chaminade IS the composer. Technically, the title is just "Concertino" but people clarify by putting the composer's name.

Same thing with the Reinecke.

A really good place to find sheet music are annual book sales. I have found some treasures yesterday.... Scores that are most probably not available anywhere else... (not any more)
