Suite Antique for Flute, Harpsichord and Strings [Score only]
- Staff Pick
“ A real investment!”
From the Publisher
for chamber orchestra
The instrumentation for this work is the same as Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No.5. The Suite is made up of six movements ranging from a 'Bach-like Aria' to a 'Richard Rodgers-style Waltz'. Rutter's own style comes through most strongly in the final Rondeau with its characteristically forward-driving rhythms and beautiful melodic lines. Evoking an 'antique' spirit, each movement is based on a Baroque or Classical style.
Performance duration (approx): 15'00
