Staff Pick

“A very personal album!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - chrish@justflutes.com

This is a very personal choice of pieces, all of which have been expertly arranged in a very personal style. The breadth of genre is wide. Mussorgsky Debussy and Bartok rub shoulders with the jazz styles of Charles Strouse and Joe Garland. The Bach Gavotte has been given swing treatment whilst the transcription of Sunrise, Sunset from Fiddler on the Roof currently set by ABRSM for grade 5 is more like a fantasy. It's all very interesting to say the least!

From the Publisher

"In this selection of pieces for flute and piano I wanted to take the opportunity to rediscover some of the music that I first got to know as a child and made clumsy attempts to play, in my case either on the clarinet or the piano. I think that at that time I was quite an unprejudiced listener for a brief while; Bach, Bartok, and Boogie Woogie were all part of the same joyful process of musical discovery. I hope that with these arrangements I can share my youthful experience of all kinds of music with today's aspiring flautists." - Adam Gorb
