D014 La Tourterelle (The Wren), Fantaisie/Polka - Damaré, E.

£12.49 – £15.49

Eugene Damaré (1840-1919) was an accomplished flautist, and pieces for flute and piccolo feature heavily amongst his 400+ works. La Tourterelle (The Wren) was originally written as a piccolo showpiece, and exists in several versions accompanied by piano or bands of different sorts. Set here for a trio of mixed flutes, the piccolo makes its appearance half way through the piece and saves its high flying acrobatics for the final sections - (a little kinder on the ears), but the bubbling song of the wren can be heard throughout, contrasting with some more robust passges lead by the alto flute. A great showpiece for advanced trio.
