OR008a The Birmingham Tango - Orriss, M.

£13.49 – £16.49

An unapologetically "tangoey" Tango, first conceived as a warm-up piece for a group of over 150 flautists at the Birmingham Flute Choir Festival in March 2024, and here presented in a slightly smaller, more accessible version, without the Contra Flutes. The strident minor key 'A' section featuring, initially, the 1st and 2nd Flutes alternates with a more dolce, lyrical 'B' theme, which is first presented by the 4th Flutes and Alto Flutes. Everybody gets a chance for melodic material though, and there is plenty to work on in term of dynamics, articulation and style. Very enjoyable to play, and to listen to!
