“A challenge!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]
If you're up for a challenge and are good at low flutes this demanding piece will be perfect for you. Ali Ryerson's Folktale is compelling and conventionally notated throughout so that, despite its undoubted jazz pedigree, it is completely accessible to classical players. There are plenty of notes to keep you occupied with the dovetailing of the parts providing a technical workout as well as delivering the jazz harmonies. Luckily it's also playable on alto and C flute so even more of us can enjoy it!

From the Publisher

A beloved star in the international jazz world, Ali Ryerson has developed a large and enthusiastic following, particularly among alto and bass flutists in the traditionally classical flute community. FOLKTALE is an original work equally inspired by both worlds. Along with all the elegant counterpoint of baroque flute duets, FOLKTALE’s language is grounded in jazz harmony and rhythm, fully notated for the classically-trained performer. Performance suggestions are provided with hints on style and phrasing. When no bass flute is available, FOLKTALE may be played on C Flute and Alto.
