“A really good flute quartet for intermediates.”
This is a really well crafted work for four young flute players of an intermediate standard. Each movement passes it's material around the group and manages the tricky task of encouraging independence whilst making sure that another part is playing almost the same thing! Each movement also has a quite different character and can easily stand alone. This makes the whole work an excellent long term purchase. Highly recommended.

Travel can be very inspiring. New places to see, people to meet and sometimes even a bit adventurous. Some of us write those daily impressions into a diary or notebook. The five short easy pieces contained in this book tell these stories. All flutes are treated equally with the melodies and accompaniments being carefully distributed among the players. The "rocking" eight notes of the first piece take you on a gentle train ride, a melancholic melody tells the story of an old birdhouse, a ballerina dances magically in the moonlight, an exciting balloon ride lifts you up in spirit and the day ends with lots of fun and charades. Good times !
