Franz, Ferne Tudor : Fun of Flying


Fun of Flying (A Sextet for 3 C Flutes, Alto, Bass, Contrabass). Composed by Ferne Tudor Franz.

Published by Falls House Press (PR.FCFF1).

An original composition for a flute sextet comprised of three C flutes, alto flute, bass flute, and contrabass. A wonderful progression through three thematic movements includes "Avian Envy," evoking the whimsical feeling of flight as the contrabass simulates a jet engine; "La La Land," an expressive and meditative section with a gentle rhythmic backdrop; and "Anthill Fugue," a fun Klezmer-like segment featuring an emphasis on the alto flute. For the upper intermediate to advanced player.
