Wild Nightingale composed by Brandy Hudelson
Written for Flute alone
Includes SCORE ONLY
Duration. 4 minutes
The Wild Nightingale is a solo beatbox flute work based on the French folk song “Rossignolet du bois,” which means, “The Nightingale of the woods.” The second line of the song, “rossignolet sauvage,” which translates to “wild nightingale,” was the inspiration for this solo. Wild Nightingale uses phonemes to mimic the song's French text, while trills and virtuosic passages imitate the sounds of the nightingale. The incorporation of beatboxing transforms this traditional song into a new, wilder variation.
