Simply French for Five Flutes
- Great for teachers
From the Publisher
Six contrasting pieces dating from the late 19th to early 20th century from French masters Claude Debussy, Gabriel Fauré and Maurice Ravel. Alongside famous flute solos such as Fauré's Pavane and Sicilienne is piano and orchestral music from Debussy, with Ravel being represented by Sleeping Beauty's Pavane from Mother Goose, and a less well known but equally attractive song from his Trois Chansons for choir. These arrangements are ideal for introducing a wealth of classical pieces to early grade ensemble players; the optional Flute 5 part is suitable for Grade 1 or below, with the difficulty level rising to around Grade 5/6 for the 1st Flute.
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
