Suite Antique (Flute & Piano)
for Flute and Piano (Reduction). The fully orchestrated version of this work uses the same instrumentation as Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No.5. The Suite Antique is made up of six movements ranging from a "Bach-like" Aria to a "Richard Rodgers-style" Waltz. Rutter's own style comes forth most strongly in the final Rondeau with its characteristically forward-driving rhythms and beautiful melodic lines. Evoking an 'antique' spirit, each movement is based on a Baroque or Classical style. (Full scores and parts are available on hire from the publisher).
