Tune of the Day: Autumn, a trio

Arranged for three flutes by Ben Kelly

This arrangement of Vivaldi's famous “Autumn” concerto was kindly contributed by one of our followers, Ben Kelly. It's an original arrangement for flute trio of the well-known first movement. Here are some words from our guest arranger:

While writing “Autumn” I had to make sure all the important parts were covered. For a flute trio because there is no baseline I had to create one using the cello part but slowing it down so there were no spaces in the music. I arranged this piece because my flute trio had to do a 50 minute performance and there were very little flute trio pieces available for free. I am happy with how the piece turned out and hope others enjoy playing it in flute trios.

Thank you for your contribution, Ben!
