Variations on The Willow Tree for Solo Alto Flute
- Staff Pick
- Editor's Choice
“Wistful music for alto flute.”
This engaging set of variations is lovely to play and just right for the alto which lends a wistful character to the writing. The Willow Tree is really quite a melancholy folksong and the variations meander around its contours using the middle part of the flute to great effect. Music for the soul possibly.
A set of four variations on the beautiful, but little known, English folk song.
