March 3, 2006 at 02:40 PM · I don't know of any...but most violins can read flute music, so you could look for a flute duet.

March 3, 2006 at 06:10 PM · most violinists i know are heavy smokers. i'm sure if you ask them to turn the ciggy sideways in a rehearsal they'd come up with something.

Check out Vivaldi's double concertos. I know of at least one that is for violin and flute.

The Bach Violin & Oboe concerto is the only one famous enough to get you in trouble. Plenty of Telemann & Vivaldi out there.

There is also a concerto for 2 flutes by Cimarosa. I have heard it played on flute & oboe, so it's probably fair game for flute/violin.

I knew Martinu had written a sonata and "Promenades" for flute & violin, but hadn't heard of a concerto. Cool.

March 9, 2006 at 03:08 AM · Mr. Nieweg,

Thank you for sharing so extensively! I greatly appreciate your listings.

March 9, 2006 at 02:27 PM · Clinton,

Any idea where we might be able to buy some of the duets listed? My wife (a flautist) and I spent some time searching a large sheet music store here in Atlanta and had no luck. FYI...flutes are limited on violin parts with regards to the low end of the range (I can't remember for certain, but I do not think they can play the low G or A). Conversely, the flute seems (to me) to be a bit more nimble in some of the higher ranges, so music written for flute can be VERY challenging on the violin.

March 9, 2006 at 03:47 PM · I must agree that flute music is rather hard for a violinist when it plays in that upper register...so fast and moving that it requires a bit more skill than I like to use for church music...church music shouldn't be that hard...often times I will write in a note to look at the piano or guitar music, or bring it down one or two octaves...

 Hi all,I'm a flutist and I suggest that if you want to use music that is not written for flute and violin, use flute music please. We flutists can't play  below B3 that you violinsts can. Nor can we go past D7 (well some really good orchestral players can...). A concerto that has been failed to mention is the Jolivet Concerto for Two Flutes. Thought be advised Jolivet's flute music is not easy. And most can't tackle it till 3rd or 4th year university.  There is also a double flute concerto by Quantz in G Major, Franz Doppler and you could easily play the Salieri Concerto in C Major for Flute and Oboe on Flute and Violin. Hope this helps.

The Martinu double concerto is pretty beast.

June 27, 2011 at 03:00 AM ·

 Sorry I forgot to mention these concertos:

Vivaldi: Concerto in C major for 2 Flutes, RV 533

Robert J. Bradshaw: Concerto No. 2 for Catherine, for flute, violin, orchestra

Ligetti: Double Concerto, for flute, oboe and orchestra

 

You'd have to make the flute part work for the violin, but it's very do able in most cases. Cheers!
