“An exploration of colours”

Charles Sinden Just Flutes staff member

Originally a collection of 15 Hungarian Peasant Songs for piano by Bartok. Little is known about this gem, arranged for flute and piano by Paul Arma - a very successful arrangement too. He later followed this with an arrangement for flute and string orchestra (the performance material of which is available on hire).

Wissam Boustany recorded this piece in 2011 and can be heard on his album 'Sounds from Within'.
