America's #1 flute specialty house since 1983.
Literally "to party with the intention of dancing", Farandula was commissioned by piccolo virtuoso, Regina Helcher in October 2007. The work in influenced by the Spanish flamenco style with effort to utilize the piccolo's low register as a dramatic means to illustrate it's unique effect and quality. Elements of virtuosic solo passages and flutter tonguing help add excitement and motivation as this "dance" capitulates into a thrilling closure. Scored for piccolo, guitar, and cello.
