On Wings of the Wind, composed by Burce R. Smith
“This composition is a display of the variety of sounds available from the flute choir and the technical flair of the group. The piece continuously moves from part to part. The listener can hear the stereo effects as the parts move through the ensemble with a final exchange beginning with the bass flute and moving through the ensemble to the piccolo and back to the bass flute part.” …… “This selection could be used as a concert opener, closer, or anywhere in a program. It is an excellent example and showcase for the flute choir.” – Bruce R. Smith
Additional rehearsal notes are included in the score.
Scored for piccolo, 4 C flutes, alto flute, bass flute, optional contrabass flute
