Andromeda
Composer: Anderson, K
Publisher: Forton Music

A new flute choir piece from established composer Keiron Anderson. To begin with, high staccato riffs on the top three parts create the impression of twinkling stars while the lower parts have a more stately tune below them. This alternates with semiquavers in cannon that race up and down the instruments like fireworks exploding. The next section continues the bustling feel of the music by using many time signature changes to keep the music on edge and moving forwards. The music then returns to the ideas of the first section before racing towards the most exciting conclusion. Covering pretty much the whole range of the instruments (particularly the lower parts) and with some very complex time signatures to handle, this is one for the expert flute choirs to really get their teeth into! 

Scored for Piccolo, 2 flutes, flute 3/alto flute, alto flute, bass flute, contrabass flute.
