Flying Insects composed by Stang
Written for 3 Flutes: 2 C flutes and Alto flute
Includes score and parts

This piece for flute trio is frantic and skittish. The flutists involved take on the persona of a group of flying insects, buzzing and sweeping in all kinds of formations. Formally, the piece is a five-part Rondo. The pitch material consists almost entirely of chromatic lines, but is highlighted by more tonal sections. The build and release of tension is perceived through the complexity of the lines involved.
