Duration: c. 9 minutes
Includes score and parts
Share five juicy stories with your audience from the fruity world of citrus land.The piece begins with the jaunty jig “Gigue L’Orange,” then goes a bit off kilter with “An Ugli Fruit Goes Bad,” featuring the low flutes in a minor and somewhat sinister dance. The piccolo then leads in the hornpipe “Lemon-Lime, So Sublime.” “The Wistful Grapefruit” is a bittersweet Celtic air. Finally, the piece finishes with the bouncy and nautical “Voyage of the Clementines.”
Scored for Piccolo, 4 C flutes, alto flute, bass flute, and optional contrabass or second bass flute.
