Prelude and Intrada
Instrumentation: Quartet Instruments: Alto Flute, Bass Flute, Flute
This attractive quartet features lyrical writing, and spirited rhythmic drive. The Prelude combines fanfare and lyrical sections as well as tonal and polytonal harmonies. The festive Intrada is in an ABA-Coda format and features crisp, energetic rhythms and lyrical contrapuntal writing. This is a memorable feature number or an impressive contest piece. The work is scored for 2 C flutes, alto flute (an optional C flute part is included for part 3), and bass flute (an optional alto flute part is included for part 4). Multiple players may be used on each part.
