The Unhappy Aardvark (+ Narrator) [Part(s) only]


  • Editor's Choice

Staff Pick

“Good for concerts.”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - chrish@justflutes.com
This is a great piece to use as an additional piece in instrument demonstration concerts. The simple story of an Aardvark who can't bring himself to eat his prey and is rescued by a vet who gives him a new mouth so that he can eat anything will appeal to everyone. The individual instruments are not highlighted by character association, rather the music illustrates the words so that the audience can watch the players in action. A narrator would be idea but it is also possible for this role to be taken by different members of the quintet. It's neither too long nor too difficult and perfect as a concert finale. Cheap too!
Difficulty guide: 8
