Vivaldi wrote a lot of beautiful music. A while ago I came across this piece and decided to arrange it one day. I tried to capture the soft and fragile accompaniment with wind sounds. The solo flute has many possibilities to flourish.
I like to think Johann Strauß liked a joke every now and then according to some pieces he wrote. So I think he would have liked this arrangement of his famous waltz. You can play it with one or two flutes and piano. Have fun!
A Flute Colors variation on the very famous piece by Edvard Grieg. If you don’t have an alto and bass flute you can also play the version with flute and piano. Try to make the sound of the pizzicato very ‘dry’ and very precise together and you will sound like a string quartet playing pizzicato.
Singing and playing really can help you to improve your sound. Once you get the hang of it, you will improve.
