Little Red Monkey for Flute Choir
- Highly recommended
For FLUTE CHOIR - An adaptation of the earlier publication for 3 flutes and piano, by popular request. Can be performed by flute quartet or a full flute choir. Parts included are: piccolo, 3 C flutes, alto, and bass.
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
Kathy Farmer has adapted this famous tune skillfully, using G minor to create the 'moderato grotesque'. The 6/8 bounces along and the rhythmic unity in most of the parts make this appealing to inexperinced groups. There are some more challenging moments though and the chromatic passages will need attention. It will need to be performed well, otherwise it could become very dull.
no optional parts
