    Tango From Espana
    Albeniz, I

    Musicians Publications presents Isaac Albeniz's Tango from Espana arranged for flexible flute quartet by Bill Holcombe and Bill Holcombe Jr. Scored for 4 C flutes (with the fourth part optional), this quartet also includes an optional alto flute part to replace flute 3 when available for performance. It is important to note that this work can also be performed as a trio, since the fourth flute part is optional.

    Isaac Albeniz was born in May 1860 in Catalonia, Spain. Albeniz achieved fame as a pianist and composer. A child prodigy, he made his debut at the age of 4 and his performance was so astonishing that some considered the possibility of fraud. At the age of 7 he gave concerts in Paris and at that same age wrote a Pasadoble that was played by military bands in Barcelona. A student of composition in various conservatories throughout Europe, his ambition was to study with Franz Liszt and he achieved that goal at the tender age of 18.

    Concert tours around the world and in the USA ensued and he settled permanently in Paris and became great friends with Claude Debussy. The body of works created by Albania includes three operas, and many pianoforte classics, among them his masterwork Iberia & Espana (one of his more notable pieces composed in 1890 and contains the celebrated Tango , which is known as one of his most popular works). Espana is more delightful and accessible (much easier) than Iberia . It is made up of six piano pieces that subtly reflect the influences of the piano literature of the 19th century salon, and, like Iberia , the harmony and style of Impressionism, which Albeniz himself helped to create. Both works reveal characteristics of the highly individualized piano technique Albeniz developed from early childhood and perfected under the tutelage of Liszt.

    The text in this significant concert piece is from the poetry of Stephen Crane. The work is constructed in the manner of a song cycle, only with narration rather than singing. The music is modern, yet accessible, and contains sections in a jazzy vein.

    Persian Silk
    Anderson, D
    This composition is based on the Silk Road, especially in the 13th century when exploration allowed greater material, cultural and religious exchange and between the East and the West. Originally composed for three flutes and double bass, the contrabass flute works surprisingly well and adds a whole new dimension to the sound of a flute quartet.

    Instrumental Colors I

    Arakawa, H

    Hiroshi Arakawa presents Instrumental Colors I for flute quartet.

    From the composer:

    'In the three movements of Instrumental Colors I aimed for diversified sound colors and harmony, since only one specific instrument type is performing.

    I. Allegro - Reminiscent of my studies in Nice when I was 20. It progresses wit non-metrical polyrhythms, and fragmentary elements (sustained legato lines) rise and disperse over an ostinato of precise subdivisions.

    II. Moderato - The second movement is an homage to my master, Alain Marion, who left us in 1998 at age 59. He enjoyed and loved his life and friends while teaching a the Conservatoire de Paris.

    III. Presto - Presto delivers cross-cultural influences between innovative music and the French/Latin music of the old days. Nostalgic yet colorful.'

    Duration: 10'10. For advanced players.

    The ultimate encore! In this intricately written and dramatic arrangement from The Wizard of Oz the various instruments take on the roles of the Scarecrow, the Tinman and the Cowardly Lion, complete with easy but effective percussion, ideas for simple costumes and general fooling around! This is a truly entertaining number, but still has real musical worth.

    First player also uses a thunderbox, second a cuckoo, third a flexatone, and fourth a two-tone woodblock and a vibraslap.

    Musicians Publications presents J.S. Bach s Air For The G String arranged for flexible flute quartet by Bill Holcombe. Scored for 4 C flutes, or 2 C flutes, alto flute, and bass flute, this arrangement is flexible for whatever instrumentation is available for your quartet!

    Air is a piece from Bach s Third Orchestral Suite in D Major, BWV 1068. The Third Suite may be the most famous of the four on account of its meltingly beautiful Air. One of the most popular and arranged pieces of all time, it achieved special notoriety through August Wilhelmj s version for the violin G string (1871). The Air s binary form two halves, each repeated and its stepping bass overlaid with a long, sustained melodic line are standard Baroque procedures, but its poignant effect transcends all formulas. - Jane Vial Jaffe

    Whilst not technically challenging, this arrangement requires musicality from all players for a successful performance. All parts are independent, and while not exceeding top E some tricky rhythms make this harder to pull off. The slow tempo makes support of the longer notes essential. Players of grade 4-5 standard will relish the chance to play this perennial favourite.

    Flute Quartet: 2 flutes, alto flute and bass flute (Bass flute may be replaced by a 2nd alto flute).

    Bach, JS :: Aria 'Aus Liebe will mein Heiland sterben'

    Aria 'Aus Liebe will mein Heiland sterben'
    Bach, JS

    Johann Sebastian Bach (1685 1750) composed St. Matthew s Passion, BWV 244, in the 1720s and it is believed that the first performance took place on April 11, 1727 at the St. Thomas Church in Leipzig. The music arranged here for Flute Quartet is the heart-wrenching aria, 'Aus Liebe will mein Heiland sterben,' extracted from the middle of the second part of the work. To set the scene, the aria comes after Jesus has been presented to the multitudes in a fast a furious, rowdy double orchestra and choir exclamation; and is condemned to death by crucifixion. Out of this outcry, the solitary flautist and soprano singer reflect on the question of sin, judgement and punishment. In this most hauntingly vulnerable aria, Bach manages to find both beauty and fragility to reflect upon this question.

    Using the parts provided, this arrangement can be performed as either a quartet with 3 C Flutes and Alto Flute, or as a quartet with 3 Alto Flutes and Bass Flute. For the latter, the Alto Flutes are to play the original C Flute parts, and the Bass Flute plays the supplemental part provided.
