Una Piccolo Sinfonia for 9 Piccolos

Staff Pick

“Not for the Faint-Hearted!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - chrish@justflutes.com

This is some piece! Rhythmically demanding, technically difficult, harmonically challenging and an acquired aural taste, it will stretch both performers and audience. The 9 piccolos are divided into 3 groups which broadly operate together, which does help in rehearsal. Twittering Machine starts with a fugue between the groups before developing into a fugue between each part. Chaconne for a Canary intersperses a tune with accompaniment mostly in quintuplet semiquavers and Rag Melancolique requires a great dexterity of ensemble skills. It obviously could be played with 9 flutes but it would lose much of it’s character - if you are lucky enough to know 9 piccolo players this is for you. Good luck!

Difficulty guide: 8-9
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
