“Easy low flutes listening!”
From the Publisher
A change of pace for low flutes, Dorff’s BALLADE is a 7-minute slow-fast-slow exploration. The rich beauty of alto and bass flute sonorities, particularly in their low registers, is inspired by jazz vocal stylings along with a theatrical approach to duet writing, as dialogue and counterpoint between the instruments builds to dramatic unison passages in octaves. BALLADE is also available for Alto Flute, Flugelhorn, and Piano.
