“Accessible pieces for alto flute”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - chrish@justflutes.com
Here are four easily accessible pieces for the burgeoning alto flute player. All are tuneful and with mostly straightforward rhythms, allowing the performer to concentrate on producing a good sound across the range.

From the Publisher

A suite of 4 character pieces for alto flute and piano. Each movement lives up to it's title: 'Flight' explores the full range of the instrument with nimble fingers required for the many semiquaver runs. 'Plaintive' is mournful and melancholic, whilst 'Edgewise' explores the rhythmic possibilities of a 5/4 time signature. The last movement ' Radiance' has an improvisatory feel to it. All with the characteristic lush harmonies that are winning Phil more and more fans all the time. A great addition to the alto flute concert repertoire.
