“Works a treat!”
This great book is ideal 'between exams' and concert material. It has everything you need. These are tunes that stick in the mind, whether or not you are familiar with G&S. The two flutes mostly dance along in pairs and the piano part is sensible enough to be played by a good student. The fact that each piece is reasonably short is simply a bonus. It all works a treat!
From the Publisher
Sir James Galway first came upon Gilbert and Sullivan's wonderful operettas while playing with Sadler's Wells Opera orchestra, which later became English National Opera. His fondness for good tunes, with which G&S operettas abound, led to this collection, created with longtime collaborator and arranger David Overton. The Gilbert and Sullivan arrangements are divided into separate albums, as some of the songs are best suited to solo flute and piano, some for two flutes and piano, and some lend themselves to a flute choir. This volume for flute duo and piano contains: Dance a Cachucha (Gondoliers), If we're weak enough to tarry (Iolanthe), None shall part us (Iolanthe), We're called Gondolieri (Gondoliers)
