Do you have one or two piccolo players who need an opportunity to shine? This piece was composed by a piccolo virtuoso for himself and his brother to perform. The flute ensemble parts are arranged from the original pizzicato string orchestra accompaniment. It is light, tuneful, entertaining music, with the accompanying flute choir parts being relatively easy.
Jean Gennin was a master of composing light music, which he and his brother, Pierre, performed with the Bournemouth [Symphony] Orchestra under Sir Dan Godfrey. They were stars of early British Broadcasting with their performances of Jean's works, and were for many years the flute section of the Bournemouth Orchestra, enormously popular with audiences. Entertainers par excellence, they always included visual gags, such as staging mock sword fights with their flutes during bars rest!
