Andante in C major for Solo Flute and Flute Choir, K315
- Editor's Choice
“A very useful arrangement if you have low flutes!”
It's always great to have useful arrangements of classic repertoire, especially ones as good as this. It will certainly teach the soloist how to project as the low flute accompaniment is very rich in texture. The first flute part is sparse, leaving the moving semiquavers to Flute 2 and three alto flutes. The two bass flutes hold it all together. The result is a beautiful new setting for Mozart's wonderful melody so if you don't have the right number of instruments start a crowd-funding scheme now!
From the Publisher
Mozart composed his Andante in C for flute and orchestra in 1778, and it is speculated that it was either an alternate slow movement for the G major concerto, or possibly the slow movement to a third flute concerto which was never completed. Here, arranged for solo flute and flute choir by Martin Melicharek, the solo part is intact, with the accompaniment arranged for a flute choir, mostly consisting of low flutes. A solo part, edited by Martin, is included, however, feel free to use any edition you like, as well as a different cadenza, or one of your own!
