“Wonderful stuff - and useful too!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member -
Christopher Caliendo, although not a flute player, has written some really great music for our instrument. Despiadado is 'inspired by reading the stories of the Argentinian cowboys' and is marked 'Presto - furioso and urgent'! All the parts are busy but the balance of the writing prevents the texture from becoming too thick. The flutes are mostly paired up which makes it easier to keep the ensemble tight and rhythmically this is not too difficult. The challenge is a technical one in which strong articulation is vital to convey the excitement. The central ' meno mosso' - very romantic' adds an extra dimension. You won't miss the lower instruments at all!
Difficulty guide: 7-8
