“Yet another winner from Mel Orris”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]

Mel Orris has this wonderful knack of choosing just the right kind of work to showcase her considerable arranging prowess, and this seven part adaptation of Holst's famous Concerto for flute, oboe and strings is pitched just right. The technical demands are within the range of most players of some experience and the pages look friendly. The challenge for any group will aways be the Fugal element which requires good counting and ensemble skills to be successful. These are encouraged by combining some independence between the two more advanced parts with an element of rhythmic unity in the others. Another winner and money well spent!

From the Publisher

This engaging and satisfying piece from 1923 was originally written for solo flute and oboe with string orchestra. Fugal textures appear throughout the three contrasting movements, which are neo-classical in style. The unison opening of the first movement leads into playful sections, with the various themes passed around the players, whilst the slow middle movement sets the haunting melodies against a somewhat ambiguous metre. The final movement romps along with gusto, eventually giving way to the English folk tune "If all the world were paper" before creeping away into the distance.
