Cohen , Jonathan : Flutes and Vegetables
Flutes and Vegetables offers a full daily recommended allowance of energetic dances sure to hold the interest of you and your audience, and consists of four courses. The meal begins with Pepper Presto, a fiery Latin number of fast syncopation and drama. Next is The Enchanted Eggplant, a wonderfully demented waltz in harmonic minor, bringing to mind TV shows and movies that blend humor, magic, and the dark side. Sweet Potato Jig is a lively jig with Celtic elements, including long rolls, drones, and the piccolo acting as a tin whistle. For dessert is Dance of the Radishes, a happy reel that builds and accelerates to a dizzy ending that will leave everybody smiling. Performance time: approximately 6 minutes. Scored for piccolo, 4 C flutes, alto flute, bass flute, and optional contrabass.
