“Interesting duets for Christmas.”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]

What makes this book interesting is that alongside the usual Christmas fare of carols and highlights from the Nutcracker is a selection of less familiar festive music. 'I Stood Darkly Dreaming' by Clara Schumann, Erik Satie's 'Pieces Froids' and Purcell's The Frost Scene from King Arthur together with the Skaters Waltz and Tritsch Tratsch Polka really broaden the scope of this book which is aimed at more advanced players than often. Anyway you can never have too many duets books to pass the time at Christmas! 

From the Publisher

30 fabulous classical pieces picked for their Christmassy aura and arranged as flute duets for intermediate players with some more suited to advanced players.

Christmas is a time of joy and fun, and for centuries composers have written music in celebration of it.

We have included religious works, seasonal music, music for parties, dancing, opera, plays, pantomime and ballet, and even Christmas gift music: Clara Schumann wrote music as a Christmas gift for her husband, Robert, and John Phillip Sousa wrote The Stars and Stripes as a Christmas gift to the American people. We hope you enjoy playing them all at every time of the year.

Most are two or three pages in length. The melodies are shared between the parts and would suit players of a similar standard who like a challenge – several (not most) are on the tricky side! Many are famous pieces by famous composers but some are beautiful works but less well known, including several by 18th and 19th century women composers.

Difficulty guide: 6-7
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
