Une Chanson du Printemps (Spring Song) is an original composition for Flute Choir. The main theme is a poignant melody in 6/8 time, meant to evoke the feeling of meandering through a field of flowers on a fine spring day–hence the title “Spring Song”. The piece is written in a “theme and variations” form that begins with a 1st Flute solo stating the theme with a very simple accompaniment. As the piece expands, it features each section playing the melody and/or counter melody during at least one variation, including a delightful duet section featuring the bass flute playing the melody in augmented form, accompanied by alto flute countermelody.
Scored for piccolo, 3 flutes, alto (alternate c-flute part included), & bass flute. Optional parts now available for FREE download: contrabass flute
