Windweaver Flute Trio
by Barbara A. Eberhart

Written in the K'au District on the Island of Hawai'i, this piece for flute trio captures the sound of the wind rising in the distance off the ocean and whispering through the old growth, ohia trees. There is a gentle 'whoosh' as the wind brushes past your ears. A careful listener will hear that wind from old Hawai'i. Written in 2007, "Windweaver" has become a favorite of flutists and audiences at the Alaska Flute Studies Center in Anchorage, Alaska. 6:00 minutes

Solace -
A Mexican Serenade
by Scott Joplin
arranged for flute ensemble

Solace, written by Scott Joplin in 1909, is subtitled "A Mexican Serenade." This is the only piece Joplin wrote using the tango rhythm. It is based on the contradanza or habanera rhythm which was popular in Mexico in the 18th century. The ending of Solace is recognizable as the theme music from the movie"The Sting." This arrangement is scored for five flutes with optional alto, bass and contrabass flute parts.

The Mysterious Barricades

by François Couperin
arranged for flute ensemble

The Mysterious Barricades by François Couperin was written in 1717 for harpsichord. It
is in the Style Brisé of the French Baroque. The music is syncopated and the melodic line
is ambiguous. With arranging this work for flute ensemble the character of the piece is
changed through the flutes' ability to sustain notes. It enables a darker more blended tone
enhancing the sense of mystery of this unusual piece. The typical Baroque embellishments
were purposefully omitted; however performers should feel free to add stylistic
embellishments.
