“A great recital opener!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member -
This is music for flute players by a flute player so the melodic line dominates, leaving the piano with a more supportive role. The outer fast movements are bright and breezy and the middle Andante flows along expressively in B flat major. Some of the writing here would benefit from judicious transposition up an octave to increase it’s lightness still further, but it’s original moderate range is ideally suited to less experienced performers. Either way it’s lovely and makes a great recital opener!
