Programme Notes

Jonathan Cohen - Metropolitan Contrarians

Article text
Composed for the mighty contra section of the Metropolitan Flute Orchestra, Paige Long, Director, to be premiered at the first International Low Flute Festival, held in Reston, Virginia, April 2018.

This quartet shows off three lovely octaves of the contra with a jazzy infectious groove. In addition to tutti playing, each part has its moment in sun with the others backing. Show your audience why low flutes are cool.

While written with contras in mind, is suitable for four equal-key instruments.

Scored for 4 contras. Performance time: 2:00 approx
