Mountaintop Echo for flute ensemble
Creativity will rule as you decide where to place each quartet for effective antiphonal phrases. Shall we have one on stage and the other at the back of the hall? Perhaps one could be in the balcony and the other in the wings?
Versatile instrumentation is part of the picture too, as 8 C flutes could perform this piece as well as 4 C flutes, a piccolo, 2 alto flutes, and a bass (with optional doubling contrabass). Clocking in at only one minute, this little gem from the 16th century makes a great concert opener!
