Suite#1 is a four movement work for large flute choir.
1) Presto The first movement is lively, with passages reminiscent of English folk music, impressive fanfares and baroque style passages.
2) Andante This is a slower, more wistful movement with rich chromatic harmonies.
3) Largo The third movement is slower again with a florid piccolo solo in the central section accompanied by flowing sixteenth notes in all parts.
4) Dolente The final movement features rich jazz harmonies in slow tempo.
Scored for Piccolo, optional G Treble Flute, 4 C Flutes, Alto Flute, Bass Flute, optional Contralto flute, optional Contrabass flute, and optional Sub-contrabass flute.
