Autumnal Music for Flute

Embrace the changing seasons with these warm autumnal treasures.

Autumn in Homeland for Solo Flute by Anže Rozman

This piece was written for Slovenian flutist Matej Zupan, and was premiered, by him, at the San Francisco Flute Festival 2010. The piece is nostalgic in nature and describes a summer that is slowly transforming into autumn; the trees changing colors as the wind softly takes their leaves and sweeps them off their branches and on to the forest bedding below.

Autumn for Flute and Piano by Cécile Chaminade, arr Trevor Wye

Originally written for piano solo by 19th- and 20th-century French composer and pianist Cecile Chaminade, Autumn has been arranged for solo flute and piano by Trevor Wye. Its wonderfully haunting melody made it one of Chaminade’s most popular works, and this new arrangement allows both pianist and flutist to show off their skills. For advanced players.
