“A great trio!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]

This is such a great trio!  There are plenty of technical challenges to keep you occupied in the five short movements - double and triple tonguing in the first Allegro, intonation and breath control in the two slow movements, ensemble skills in the Vivo and fingerwork in the closing Allegro molto. The end result is quirky and great fun. This is vintage Katherine Hoover and you'll love it I'm sure! 

From the Publisher

The Trio for Flutes was written in 1974. Having played flute for many years, I did much of my earliest composing for the instrument. These five short movements explore various effects and sonorities, and different ways of combining the voices. This last is particularly evident in Movement III, Vivo, where the main line sweeps from voice to voice, and the open fifths constantly switch voice and register. I also had fun with the fourth movement, Largo, which is a musical palindrome, like the word "radar"; in other words it is the same backward as forward.
