flute-duet-2

Similar to Book One. These duets in all minor keys are fun to play.

“The Flute Duet Practice Books, One and Two, are a compendium of major and minor scales, thirds and arpeggios in duet form. The parts are equal and alternate between motion and harmony. These books which present the same three exercises in every key, would be useful for teaching young students that practicing scales can be fun.” (C3-4) Flute Talk New Music Review February 2009

Chinese Folk Song Suite

Four Chinese Folk Songs arranged for flute quartet with optional alto flute part

Chinese Folk Song SuiteFour beautiful folk melodies from different regions of China arranged by Ruth Kasckow for four flutes. Middle school and up.

“Chinese Folk Song Suite is an arrangement by Ruth Kasckow of four old tunes from the Chinese provinces of Hanan, Qinhai, Yunnan, and Shanxi. For four C flutes and alto that doubles the 4th flute part, these simple arrangements all have similar harmonies and tempos, providing an overall impression that is pleasant and calm. ….. accessible and well worth pursuing.”
(C3-4) Flute Talk New Music Review February 2009
“Chinese Folk Song Suite arranged by Ruth Kasckow is a wonderful, intriguing piece of music. The sounds of China are creatively played by the flutes using enjoyable melodies, interesting rhythms, and effective dialogue.”
“Highlights the beautiful tone quality, expression, and range of the flute. ”
“Employing the range and timbre unique to the flute, as well as lush harmonization, each short piece creates a vivid picture of which its folk song speaks.”
“I’ve had the pleasure of performing these four quartet pieces and I just love them. Each part has its own personality, and no one is left playing “background” notes while the others get all the fun. Highly recommended!”
