Musetta Steps Out for Mixed Flute Quartet
- Editor's Choice
“Love it or not!”
Your reaction to this flute quartet will depend entirely on how you like your classics. Verdi's beautiful Musetta Waltz has been given the 'big-band jazz-age swing' treatment by Daniel Dorff - now that takes real imagination! That arrangement is skillful is without question so if your group has an instinctive feel for both styles and a great sense of humour they'll love it. Or not!
From the Publisher
Using the beautiful Musetta’s Waltz from Puccini’s "La Boheme" as a jumping-off point, Daniel Dorff offers flute quartets an opportunity to swing like a big band from the jazz era. While the Bass Flute "drives the bus" like a string bass and rhythm section, the Piccolo, C Flute, and Alto Flute take turns playing lead, showcasing each player and the unique color of their instrument. Suitable for high school through professional quartets.
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
