“Lovely Schumann arrangements”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - chrish@justflutes.com
Schumann's Scenes from Childhood work very well in this good arrangement for 4 C flutes. There is some challenging writing here, for example the constant triplets for flute 3 in Of Foreign Lands and the tricky semiquaver passages for all the players in Contentment. All the parts are quite independent of each other - Dreaming passes the melody round most effectively and the end result is music that you will use many times over.
Difficulty guide: 4-7
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
