Concerto for Flute and Wind Orchestra

McNeff, Stephen

A traditional three movement concerto written specifically for (but without compromise) a capable but non-professional soloist and a reasonably able wind orchestra.

An exciting first movement explores both the sonority and agility of the flute whilst engaging playfully with the ensemble using shared materials. The second spins languorous long tunes over subtle accompaniments whilst the third opens with a lively, business like but fun workout for both both soloist and band. It's slow, expressive middle section leads to an exuberant, cheerful finale, the whole culminating in a feeling of having been on a very special enjoyable adventure.

Exciting! Imaginative! Invigorating!

Grade AB 6-7 US 4

c: 22 minutes
