Morceau de Concours (for solo Alto Flute and low flutes ensemble)
It is a pleasure to announce the beautiful and sensitive slow ballade by Gabriel Faure, 'Morceau de Concours' has been recently arranged for SOLO ALTO FLUTE and a small low flutes ensemble. Robert Rainford (from Forton Music), fine low flute player and enthusiast was so kind to make the arrangement for an April 2012 trip to Los Angeles, where I performed and recorded the short work with the Los Angeles Flute Orchestra. The beauty of the simple yet lyrical line is only enhanced by the colour of the alto flute, and the soft hue of the tender chords played by alto, bass, contra and subcontrabass (or double contra) are quite effective and even evocative. A recording of the arrangement should appear in late 2012. I thank Robert for his work and kind consideration of this most memorable tune.
