Eighth Note Publications Flexible Band/String Series provides ultimate flexibility for ensembles with incomplete instrumentation or odd combinations. These pieces are playable by as few as 5 woodwind, brass, or string players with or without percussion. This creates the opportunity for a mixed quintet to perform these titles but also allows for performance for 10-15 players up to full a band/orchestra with parts doubling. Great for music camps, contest use or any band room that has non-standard instrumentation.
Based on the Newfoundland folk song Feller from Fortune, this piece by Bill Thomas has been transformed from the original jig to become an energetic overture featuring a number of solo opportunities, interesting percussion parts, and some simple mixed meter work.
