Il Cardellino for flute ensemble

$11.00

Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741) wrote several concertos for flute, most of them requiring a highly virtuosic performer.

The concerto “Il Cardellino” is inspired by the natural sound of a singing goldfinch. This arrangement provides especially the piccolo player with the opportunity to show his/her technical skills, while the whole ensemble strengthens its performance of baroque phrasing and ornamentation.
