In 1979 Duke Dobing commissioned this wonderful addition to our flute and string repertoire and the composer arranged it beautifully for flute and piano. Each movement is a gem: Prelude is good for high notes; Chanson for soul; Ostinato for rhythm; jazz Waltz for technique! In the last movement, I switch to the piccolo for those impossible final bars.

From the Publisher

For flute, harpsichord, and strings or flute and piano The instrumentation 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 forth 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. Full scores and parts are available on hire.
