This Suite is perhaps the most famous work by this composer still regularly performed. Each movement is an exquisitely crafted miniature showcasing an aspect of the flute. The opening Allegretto is flowing and melodic, the Idylle is tranquil and languid, and the final Waltz bubbles across the whole range of the flute with almost a circus-like feeling. This arrangement brings a new light to this perpetual flute favourite, with the ensemble parts supporting the soloist.
