“More beautiful music.”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - chrish@justflutes.com

Also available: By Kells Waters3 Korean Folk Songs
Kelly Via has set these three different types of folk music very successfully. By Kells Waters is a simple but effective piece in one movement with straightforward rhythms and textures. The 3 Korean Folk Songs have more independence of line and more rhythmic variety within each movement and there is the option to add a harp or piano. Appalachain Suite in 4 movements contains some beautiful melodies that have been skilfully arranged. Again the rhythms are simple but some strong finger work is needed in 'Fiddle Tunes' which includes a Wild Goose Chase. These three pieces are well suited to those who are put off by a myriad of sharps or flats, and prove that flute choir music doesn't have to be complex to work well.
