Dal d'Helene composed by Gilles Cagnard
Written for 3 Flutes
Includes score and parts

This trio is a suite of the young Helene's first time at a ball with her parents.  Each movement represents one part of her evening, with the first movement being her entry into the ballroom.  She dances a slow waltz in the second movement, and watches a man with a wooden leg dance in the third movement.  Helene returns home in the fourth movment, with her mother singing a lullaby.  In the fifh movement, she talks of her evening half asleep to fall deeply asleep.  A nice piece for a student recital, with most of the movements in either 3/4 or 4/4 (the third movement offering a bit of a challenge in 5/4).
