Flute Quartet
Four Flourishes for Four Flutes
A welcome addition to repertoire

The Flute Quartet, Four Flourishes for Four Flutes, is a quartet for three concert flutes and alto flute. There are four short, interconnected pieces which have a total performance duration of a little under eight minutes. The highly enjoyable and accessible pieces contrast moods and styles, opening with a rhythmic and dynamic Moto Perpetuo. The second piece is a Wicked Waltz where the outer sections are in a minor mode and with a humorous, music-box-styled middle section. The Intermezzo is lyrical with a cantabile, double-octave melody in flute and alto flute. There are gently lilting accompaniments on middle instruments. The finale is a lively Tarantella where the melody quickly shifts between all four flutes. Of intermediate standard, the pieces, either performed together or separately, make for ideal concert repertoire in schools and colleges or simply playing for fun with four, flute-family friends!


The quartet is intermediate in level of difficulty for all flutes.
