Out of Their Rinds - Five Fresh Squeezed Citrus Soliloquies by Jonathan Cohen

Share five juicy stories with your audience from the fruity world of citrus land.The piece begins with the jaunty jig “Gigue L’Orange,” then goes a bit off kilter with “An Ugli Fruit Goes Bad,” featuring the low flutes in a minor and somewhat sinister dance. The piccolo then leads in the hornpipe “Lemon-Lime, So Sublime.”  “The Wistful Grapefruit” is a bittersweet Celtic air.  Finally, the piece finishes with the bouncy and nautical “Voyage of the Clementines.”

Scored for Piccolo, 4 C flutes, alto flute, bass flute, and optional contrabass or second bass flute. Performance time: approximately 9 minutes.
