Entr'actes from 'Carmen' [Flute Choir]

£12.00

From the Publisher

Flute Choir/Ensemble - Piccolo, 3 flutes, alto flute, bass flute, optional contr'alto flute, contra-bass flute, optional percussion. A fairly large scale arrangement of the three entractes from Bizet's Carmen for flute choir. Each movement has a different character - the first is march-like, the second lilting and romantic, and the third is full of spanish fire. The first movement is relatively straightforward featuring bass and alto flute solos. The second requires sustained playing in the third octave from flute one in particular, and the third requires nimble fingerwork from all players and strong tonguing to bring out the spanish feel. At around 6 minutes long, this is a nice suite to include in a concert.
