Overture for Strings by Gordon Jacob
Arranged in 2013 for Flute Ensemble by Robert Rainford   
Scored for 4 C Flutes, Alto Flute, Bass Flute and optional Contrabass Flute
Includes score and parts. 

This piece shows all the stylistic characteristics of one of England’s lesser known composers. The opening, with it’s unison semiquaver passages alternating with dissonant major seventh chords,  has almost the feeling of a baroque concerto grosso about it, albeit with a very modern harmonic palette. These sections alternate with slower passages featuring lush harmonies and sinuous, flowing lines. The end is a flourish of semiquavers followed by a staggering series of jazz tinged chord that push all the instruments up to the top of their registers (even the alto and bass flutes!). A great chance to bring the music of this composer to a wider audience.
