“Short and Sweet”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]

This is a nice little piece from Gary Schocker which is typical of his style. It opens with two flutes quietly dancing along in thirds accompanied by a syncopated bass. A tune develops over this before the writing becomes more complex, with the parts entwining with argeggio figures. There is also some subdivision of the parts which makes the texture much more dense and it's therfore really important to keep the rhythms tight where possible. It all ends calmly. Short and sweet!

From the Publisher
