Sérénade Populaire for Flute and Piano
- Staff Pick
This capricious and well-written piece is a little less daunting than some of the core repertoire. Easy on the eye and with a simple rhythmic structure, much of the interest is added by the piano harmonies. The expressive introduction gives scope for those with a great sound to shine, before a tricky little Allegretto has to be negotiated before the opening returns. The Allegro spiritoso has a catchy rhythm and uses scale passages to create the excitement. Trick fingerings for the end will allow your virtuosity to bring the house down!
