Flutes in the Garden for Three Flutes

“Beautiful music for three good flute players.”
There is a really girlie picture on the front of this publication (3 identical flute players with their backs turned overlooking the sea) but the music, although wistful in character, belies this peaceful scene. it's tricky for a start, with lots of notes, complex rhythms and frequently changing metre. Luckily there are alternatives given for the top Ds. You will need good players for this - especially ones who can hold their own line. Those who like a challenge will up for this though - the music can be beautiful if played really well.

The whole, at a duration of 5’ 30”, is a beautiful year-end recital piece for advanced students — each part is of equal importance and skill level.
