Siciliano (Reimagined) for Flute (or Alto Flute) and Piano
- Highly recommended
From the Publisher
Inspired by one of the flute repertoire’s loveliest melodies, SICILIANO (REIMAGINED) is a gently adapted “jazz-flavored” setting of the slow movement from Bach’s Sonata in Eb Major. Solo parts are provided both for C Flute and for Alto Flute. With a fairly close rendering of the authentic flute line and more contemporary chords in the piano part, SICILIANO (REIMAGINED) is an inviting way to play music with a modernized jazz sound, while reading traditional classical notation.
Inspired by one of the flute repertoire's loveliest melodies this never strays far from the source except for its reharmonization. Ocassional jazz-infused touches give the melody a fresh perspective without diluting its purity. I am always moved by how beautfully the music of the 18th century and contemporary music coexist.
Performers may play this arrangement in the Baroque style.
