“Lovely music for a lovely combination”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]

These three short pieces really showcase the wonderful sonorities that this combination of instruments can produce. On the Temple Stairs has an elusive alto melody accompanied by moving guitar semiquavers. Fruits and Flowers by contrast has another beautiful tune, this time with more flowing and gentler quavers. And Now for Some Dancing is much more lively with a Spanish and jazz influences. It's all lovely!
