This beautiful tune by Maria-Theresia Paradis works really well for flute ensemble, especially when the arranger is as skilled as Mel Orriss. The first part has most of the glory and the G minor key means that good control of a third octave A flat will add real class to the performance. The other parts all have the some of the tune too and the balance of the accompaniment is very sympathically handled. If you have alto and bass flutes they will  obviously add extra colour but this works very well for C flutes only. A winner! 

Also available for 5 C flutes

From the Publisher

Although this charming Sicilienne is perhaps the most famous composition attributed to the Austrian composer Maria-Theresia von Paradis, it may have been derived from a Violin Sonata by Weber. It was recently given a high profile performance at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, played by cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason, and is also well known to flute teachers, having featured in the Grade 4 syllabus. The 1st flute takes the lead in this lilting flute ensemble arrangement in Bb major, but all players get the chance to play sections of the tune in the repeated sections, including the expressive alto and bass flutes!

Performance duration (approx): 2'38

Difficulty guide: 4-7
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is total beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
