A La Maniere de Pat, composed (c.2013) by Vincenzo Sorrentino
Rich lush chords from the lower flutes support beautifully flowing melodic lines in the upper parts. Changing time signatures add to the interest. With plenty of rhythmic unison between the parts, and difficulty ranging from approximately grade 6 down to grade 4 (approximately), this is a chance for developing players to access the music of this contemporary composer.
Scored for piccolo, 4 C flutes, 2 alto flutes, 2 bass flutes, contrabass flute
