In the original piece the beautiful melody is accompanied by the pizzicato playing of the strings. In this arrangement I tried to copy the pizzicato feel with pizzicato on the flute. The alto flute part and the bass flute part are the same. If necessary one can be left out.
Antoine Hugot was a professor at the Conservatoire in Paris and wrote one of the most important flute methods of his time. He also wrote a few flute duets. In this version of Flute Colors, flutter tongue has been added to increase the support and thereby increase the sound.
Singing and playing is a perfect technique to improve your sound. In this piece it is also a nice coordination exercise. Practice this piece with singing and playing first, and then perform it without singing and playing.
This overture is in typical French style. Picture a king entering the room at the opening of the piece and in the second part the dancers appear. All very graceful and now with a small Flute Colors wink.
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 wanted to add another easy melody to the Flute Colors collection and have a little flute fun with it. I ended up with different versions. So now you can play this piece as a duet, trio, quartet or quintet. And if you don’t have a bass flute, you can just leave it out.
Spring has come and the sun will show more of itself. This Irish traditional is all about the rising sun. The flutter tongue gives a little bit of percussive feeling tot he piece. Good for practicing support and for relaxing the tongue.
