Overture to L’Italiana in Algeri for flute ensemble
Rossini overtures are all so different in character, while still having beautiful melodies and being fun and energetic to hear and to play.
The solos in this arrangement are distributed between flute parts 1, 2, and 3, giving more than one person the opportunity to shine. Double tongued sixteenth note sections can be reduced to eighth notes for clarity if needed.
Added flexibility is provided here with the additional parts for flutes 5 and 6 that are easier than “intermediate.”
