Is this more South of France? or Greek? Either way, it's a wonderful sunny piece for alto flute with plenty of opportunity to get those fingers moving.
After a short, plaintive opening, to which the alto flute's tone colour adds an ethereal quality, there is a wild and ecstatic dance. The work was originally composed for C flute (opus 14), but shows itself well suited to the alto.
The French composer, Mouquet, is best known to flute players for his slightly earlier work, 'La Flute de Pan'.
