In Stock. This suite is ideal for the developing flute player. Each of the movements has its own character or mood and this allows for expressive playing as well as brilliant fanfares. Since the movements are fairly short, this is an excellent set of pieces for performances that are restricted by a time limit such as a church service. This would also make an excellent contest piece at a festival to show off the musical capabilities of a young musician.
Canon by Johann Pachelbel is one of the most famous and recognizable pieces of classical music. The treatment of the melody in this arrangement follows a popular Baroque tradition, the concerto grosso. This technique utilizes a small group of soloists that were supported by the remainder of the ensemble. In this arrangement, the solo instruments are 2 solo cornets and 2 euphoniums which have the majority of the technically scalar passages as well as the lyrical melody line. The "chamber sound" created by this arrangement is a welcome variation from the tutti sound that is commonly found in brass band writing.
