Product details

This little suite is inspired by the winds, movements of air in different climates and at different times of the year.
1. THERMALS: After watching hand-held kites dip and rise in graceful curves, soaring on thermals at a Kite Festival, I sought to express the dynamics of those motions in music.
2. MISTRAL: The cold wind in the North of France can be capricious, even playful.
3. SIROCCO: The warm, sultry wind over southern Europe emanates from North Africa, redolent of the scent of spices from caravans moving slowly across the desert.

— May Howlett

Published by: Wirripang [M720072678] — 1 score 15p. -- A4 (portrait)) and 1 part (8p. -- A4 (portrait))

Contents note:

Thermals -- Mistral -- Ah! Sirocco.

The flute is an instrument that lends itself to many moods. These short pieces aim to capture several of these, from light and bouncy to sustained and seductive.
