Five Easy Pieces for Flute and Piano (1972)
- Staff Pick

“A delight from start to finish!”
The 'Easy' in the title of this lovely collection refers to the style rather than to the standard. Included amongst its pages are some tricky techniques but they're all in a really good cause! Each piece is short and full of character. From La Passeggiata di Puccinettino, bouncy and rhythmically simple to the more complex La Chioccia with it's quirky grace notes and flutter-tonguing there is always something to hold your interest. The Serenata is a lilting 6/8 dance with some tricky arpeggio passages to negotiate, the Pavana is wistful rather than dark and the closing Il Soldatino is a cross between a march and a dance. A delight from start to finish!
