    Castle in the Mist for Alto, Bass, C Flute or Piccolo and Piano
    by Phyllis Avidan Louke, ALRY Publications

    “This three-movement work is scored to showcase the timbres of flute, alto flute, bass flute, and piccolo (with piano). The recommended instrument for each movement is flexible, however, so another sibling from the flute family can be substituted. For example, the first movement is recommended for alto flute, but a part for C flute is also included. The second movement is ideally for bass flute, but can be played on alto or C flute (transposed alto part is included). The final movement is for piccolo, but can be played on C flute or alto. If you enjoy playing the “other” flutes, this can be a Fabulous way to showcase the whole group in a solo recital. The work evokes scenes of a Renaissance flavor, with program notes depicting knights, lords and ladies, and scenes of a peaceful kingdom.”
