“Simple but effective.”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]
The three works featured here are all simple in structure, short and with modest note ranges and sensible keys. The more familiar Ombre mai fu from Handel's Xerxes is lovely with the melody supported by a crotchet accompaniment. The Lasso Madrigals are good too, mixing up a range of styles between them. The Gabrieli Ricercare is more complex with its changing times and fast tempo but it is still perfectly playable. This really good collection is perfect for less experienced groups and would be especially good for those returning to the flute after a break and who want to make good music.

From the Publisher

Seeking to bridge the educational divide between modern flute and baroque flute performance opportunities, Traverso Colore was founded in early 2005 as an outgrowth of the baroque flute class at Florida State University. They are a baroque flute ensemble that promotes baroque music on period instruments and creates more opportunities for flutists to perform original and arranged works from this historical era. All the arrangements in the Traverso Colore series, created by Karen McLaughlin Large and Tammara K. Phillips, can be played on baroque flutes as well as modern flutes. Volume 3 includes: 'Ombra mai fu' from Xerxes (George Frideric Handel), Three Madrigals (Orlando di Lasso), and Ricercare in the Twelfth Mode (Andrea Gabrieli).
