When people are
thinking of organising classical music for a special event, they often
think first of a string quartet. But why not try a flute quartet -
flute, violin, viola and cello? Repertoire that works for a string
quartet usually also works for a flute quartet, but the flute adds
interest and flexibility to the sound.
Or if there isn't
enough space for a quartet, either in the venue or in the budget, a flute
trio (flute, violin and cello) might be the answer, or maybe just a duo of
flute and violin. If the venue has a piano, attractive combinations
include a trio of flute, violin and piano, or a duo of flute and piano.
