Souvenir Anglais Fantaisie, Op51
- Staff Pick
After a very florid opening section, this trio uses the Last Rose of Summer as a base for some variations and ends with Garry Owen. Tulou obviously liked us when he visited! Grade 8 students will love this challenge.
Tulou, with Drouet, Fürstenau and Nicholson, formed a famous quartet of flute players in the first half of the nineteenth century. On one of his visits to England he wrote a fantasy on well-known English songs. The first movement exhibits unmistakably operatic influences; the second and third are inspired by popular English themes. This edition consists of the score and parts.
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
- Allegro agitato
