“Great for everyone!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]

It's so satisfying to play a really good arrangement, especially of Henry Purcell which is quite unusual. All the contrapuntal character of his writing has been preserved and suits this combination of flutes very well. The parts are not technically challenging so all the skill will go into the balancing of the lines as they come and go with the alto adding a depth to the texture to capture the 'consort' colour. Great for schools, amateur groups and good musicians everywhere!

From the Publisher

"This quartet for 3 flutes and 1 alto flute is an arrangement of Purcell's Fantazias. They are dedicated to the quartet VerQuer and both dances are published on the CD "flautastic" (LC 24625, EAN 4099885596988) by VerQuer.

Henry Purcell's fantasias were probably written around 1680 and were composed as consort music. They are among the most sophisticated and demanding works in this genre. They are characterised by surprising modulations and are ahead of their time in terms of harmony.

This arrangement is based on the original and has only made adjustments where necessary. All four parts have equal rights and alternate in the melodic line. I hope you enjoy playing these two fantasies from the high baroque period!"
