Variations on 'America'
- Interesting, worth a look
From the Publisher
Our most popular Ives work, originally for organ solo, is available for flute and piano! This is the perfect showcase for flute in a patriotic program (or general use), with its Ivesian variations of the familiar melodic elements, from a simple statement of the tune to the flowing obbligato passages that soar above the accompaniment. Suitable for advanced students and about 7 minutes in length, Variations on “America” is just the crowd-pleaser to finish off any recital.
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
