Dancing Dessert Suite by Paige Dashner Long
For flute and piano with optional percussion (triangle, cow bell, guiro. bongo drums)
Piano score, flute and percussion parts
Dancing Dessert Suite is a delectable and delightful composition in three delicious movements that combines musically the excitement of travel with scrumptious desserts. The first movement, Chocolate Truffle Tango, takes you to Argentina, beginning softly in anticipation of the exciting and dramatic bravura to come. A modern twist on a Viennese classic, Sacher Torte Waltz, is an elegant, whirling, fast paced waltz, guaranteed to make you want a slice of this famous Austrian chocolate torte with apricot jam and luscious chocolate glaze. Pure energetic fun describes the rapid pace of Lemon Merengue Pie, with musical roots from the Dominican Republic. It’s time to put on your dancing shoes!
Dancing Dessert Suite is also available in a version for Standard Flute Choir (and Percussion), as well as Low Flute Choir (and Percussion).
