French Quarter
Chamberlain, N

Nicole Chamberlain s French Quarter was composed for Perimeter Flutes to premiere at the 2013 National Flute Association Convention in New Orleans, La. The piece is split into quarters and explores different areas of the historic French Quarter in New Orleans with one flutist doubling piccolo, one c flute, one alto, and one bass.

The first movement opens the piece with its crowded Bourbon street. The second movement is the whirling powdered sugar that dances in the air on a windy day from tourists eating the beignets. The third movement echoes the music heard from the jazz institution known as Preservation Hall. Finally we exit the French Quarter being carried out by a Jazz Funeral to and from the St. Louis Cemetery where many a jazz legend is laid to rest. The piece makes use of some extended flute techniques, like beat boxing, in the hopes to replicate percussion, double bass sounds, and sometimes even wind to capture the atmosphere of the French Quarter.
