Pavane pour une Infante Defunte [4 Flutes]
From the Publisher
On the occasion of the Kuhlau Quartet´s 10th anniversary in 1983, the Danich composer Erik Norby orchestrated Maurice Ravels´s famous “Pavane” for flute quartet (two C-flutes, alto flute and a bass flute.) Because of Erik Norby’s great orchestration ability and vivid perception for Ravel´s music, this seemingly impossible task was brilliant solved by him in 1985. In its new form the “Pavane” became a success both as far as the audience and music critics were concerned.
This is a lovely sensitive arrangement of this beautiful piece as Erik Norby really knows how to handle flutes. If you have the money I suggest you buy it - and you will have the stunning front cover to look at as well!
