They Started Dancing for Flute Choir
- Great for teachers
From the Publisher
Written in 2015 for Liz Childs and the Bedfordshire Flute Academy, this is essentially an energetic piece requiring plenty of vitality and drive behind its rhythmic motifs for a successful performance. The title suggests a group of people leaping into a vigorous dance; framed in an A B A structure, the middle part is reminiscent of a folk-like melody at a slower tempo, where the performers rest in a more graceful reflective fashion, before recapturing their earlier energy and moving towards a determined, exciting conclusion.
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
