Pavane for Flute Orchestra

PavaneThe first arrangement of this piece for full flute orchestra!  This arrangement is scored for 4 C Flutes, 2 Alto Flutes, Bass Flute and Contrabass.

This charming and popular piece was written in 1887. Obtaining its rhythm from the slow processional Spanish court dance of the same name, the Pavane ebbs and flows from a series of harmonic and melodic climaxes, conjuring a cool, somewhat haunting, Belle Epoque(French for “Beautiful Era”) elegance. The piece is scored for a small orchestra and optional chorus.

A typical performance lasts around seven minutes.

Guo Flutes are now available!

Guo FlutesFlute World is now stocking Guo Flutes and Piccolos!  Try out a Grenaditte or New Voice Flute in C, or a Grenaditte or New Voice Piccolo today!

Grenaditte has similar acoustic properties to bamboo-wood, but without the disadvantages of tonal fluctuations, the risk of cracking and the high costs associated with wood instruments.

New Voice instruments are made from a composite material which is super light-weight, and is actually lighter than the standard Grenaditte flute. The sound is brighter and much like that of a regular metal flute.
