Celtic Music for Flute and Piano
Author: Allan Alexander and Jessica Walsh
Publisher: ADG Productions
Celtic Music for Flute and Piano is a Flute and Piano version of the very successful book, “Celtic Music for Flute and Guitar.” Guitarists aren’t always easy to find, and many flute players have requested that we publish a flute and piano version. The piano score has the piano left & right hand parts along with the flute melody (see pdf file below), the flute score is a pull out section that can be played by the flute player away from the piano score.
This music is an exchange of ideas between the musicians. In this book, sometimes the flute will have the lead and sometimes the piano. The music is conversational; thoughts are passed back and forth, and when that happens, the music comes alive. We get lost in this music. Play the beautiful “Hewlett” or the haunting “Separation of Soul and Body,” then turn to “The Song of the Chanter,” and you will be hooked. This is music that comes alive every time you play it.
The book comes with a Play-Along CD. The piano parts, performed by Andrew Gordon, are on the right channel. The recorded flute sounds on the left channel. This separate-channel format allows you to silence the recorded flute part and play the music with the pianist.
