Mediterranean Winds for Alto Flute and Piano
- Staff Pick
“Easy-listening for alto flute!”
These short pieces are a great way to start off your alto flute playing journey. Each one has completely a different character, ranging from the jazzy Ghibli to the beautiful melody of Garbino and the rhythmic energy of Maestrale. Each one would stand alone which is even better and the easy listening style of the writing is most appealing!
From the Publisher
Around the end of 2019 I got the desire to write for alto flute and piano, and these pieces were written between December of that year and January 2020. I gave them names the Italians use for the winds which can be experienced across their peninsula, but there is no real intention to depict these phenomena. The pieces show influences of jazz and fusion harmony with some hints of the neo-classic. I consider them to be of medium difficulty. I have opted for modal key signatures, rather than leaving the scores in “open key”, trying to find the set of sharps or flats that is nearest to the written music. The pieces can be performed separately or in a suite, in which case I would suggest the order in which they are presented here. I would like to thank Marco Macchi for his help and advice with the piano parts.
