Concert Fantasy on Sousa's “Stars and Stripes Forever” by Mark Starr. Arranged for flute (doubling on piccolo at the ending coda for dramatic effect!) and piano. Also contains an alternate piano 4-hands accompaniment on the coda ending to add even more drama!
A tour de force fantasy on the best-known American march ever written, this stunning concert piece puts “The Stars and Stripes Forever” through a series of free variations that will provide experienced flutists with a wonderful opportunity to display their prowess. This work is a witty and brilliant show piece that will be great fun to play and provides an unusual opportunity for participation by student piccolo players in the audience in the rousing final bars. Concert Fantasy is a delightful addition to the repertoire for advanced flutists. A witty, brilliant showpiece for virtuosic flutists who enjoy having fun.
