Trio for Flutes composed by Katherine Hoover
Written for 3 Flutes
Includes score and parts
Duration. 8 minutes

A contemporary American composer, she wrote this in 1974.  The five short movements explore various effects and sonorities, and different ways of combining the voices.  This is particularly evident in movement III, Vivo, where the main line sweeps from voice to voice, and the open fifths constantly switch voice and register.  The fourth movement, Largo, is a musical palindrome, as it is the same backward as forward.  The other movements are Allegro, Andante and Allegro molto.
