“Lovely!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - chrish@justflutes.com

This is another lovely work from Ian Clarke which is rich in atmospheric colour. It's approachable too! The contemporary techniques used are restricted to residual tones, jet whistles and various tongue rams with an absence of different fingerings to learn. This together with the alternative lines for less experienced players means that a wider range of abilitities can have a go. There are still plenty of notes in all the other parts though and the advanced will have to work hard to make this piece sound really effective. With such wonderful music it's unlikely that anyone will mind!

From the Publisher
