This is a most interesting work by Katherine Hoover who really knows how to write for flutes. The scoring in the atmospheric Dunes is very thick with all parts playing together, but Sandpipers has more independence in the writing and Kites will really test ensemble skills. The harmonic language throughout could be described as chromatic and there are plenty of minor 2nds and major 7ths to add interest to the texture which can sometimes sound a little bland in this combination. Each movement could stand alone but a complete performance would give the ensemble a real sense of achievement.
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
