PETER MARTIN�S MIXING THE MALT Arranged for flute ensemble by Paige Dashner Long
Peter Martin�s energetic Mixing the Malt is now available for expandable flute ensemble. Arranged by internationally known flutist Paige Dashner Long, this work can be performed by a minimum of flute quartet (Flute 1, Flute 2, Flute 3, and C alternate alto flute/alto flute) with optional percussion or expanded to any number of flutes up to full flute orchestration of piccolo, Flute 1, Flute 2, Flute 3, Alto Flute, Bass Flute with optional contrabass flute and optional percussion.
Parts for Flute 1, Flute 2 and Flute 3 are identical in both the quartet and expanded flute orchestration, but the C alternate alto flute/alto flute part(s) in the quartet setting is slightly edited for optimum performance by flute quartet. The scores also reflect these minor differences. Be sure to select the score and C alternate alto flute/alto flute part that you prefer. Conductors who are using percussion may prefer to use a score without percussion for less page turns. Scores are available for flute quartet (no percussion), expanded flute orchestra and expanded flute orchestra with percussion.
Optional percussion parts include: Tenor Drum or Bodhran (traditional Irish Drum), Triangle, Woodblock, and Timpani. Select them all or just choose those that you prefer. It�s also fun to add Penny Whistle to the Flute 1 part.
Dedicated to the Metropolitan Flute Orchestra, in summer residence at New England Conservatory in Boston, this ensemble, directed by Paige, is pictured here on tour in Ireland. Visit Paige�s website for detailed information about flute ensembles and contra flutes.
