“Good music for a flute choir.”
This appealing piece is textural rather than tuneful and really uses the flutes to create waves of sound. The opening slow section begins with chromatic building of chords before using a shadowy motif and accompaniment that is passed around the group. This turns into a waltz which uses this opening material. The use of the instruments is really skillful and the result, although not happy singalong, music is still lovely!
