Dizzy Fingers for flute quintet
How fast can you go? Dizzy Fingers was a best seller for Zez Confrey (1895-1971), an American composer and performer of novelty piano and jazz band music. His fans had the joy of experiencing it via a piano roll for player pianos in addition to live performances. This quintet is even better with seven flutes, when including piccolo and contrabass. It highlights the composition’s playfulness and would make an excellent encore.
