Toppling Leaves by Geoff Warren
For 3 C Flutes and Alto Flute
Includes score and parts

This quartet is in a modern jazz style. A chorale-like introduction using modern harmonies leads into solo-like sections where flute 1 has a free line over ostinati in the lower three parts, interspersed with short interjections in rhythmic unison. There then follow sections where the top three parts build up to a climactic finish. Wandering through many keys (including Ab major), and using some complex rhythmic patterns, this is a treat for a more advanced quartet.
