Inspirations for my recent arrangements for flutes have come from several different directions. Aufderheide’s “The Thriller” was featured on a program of ragtime piano compositions. I immediately put it on my list of pieces to arrange for flute choir and am glad to feature it as being composed by a woman.
Liszt’s “Whirlwind” caught my attention as a piece that could highlight 2 piccolos, 2 C flutes, and 2 alto flutes. The fast tempo makes it a particularly challenging ensemble selection.
I’m glad to offer more varying styles of energetic music for flute teachers to use with their students of all levels of ability.
