Five Movements from Aladdin Suite (Flute Choir)
Five Movements from Aladdin Suite (Flute Choir) By Carl Nielsen, Arranged by Juliette Dominski, Published by Edition Svitzer (2017)
"I discovered Aladdin stage music a few years ago, when playing Opus 34 Suite for orchestra. From the first notes, I was utterly moved by the beauty of the piece. What an incredible journey Carl Nielsen is offering with his music! All flutists know Carl Nielsen's concerto for flute, but his symphonic music has surprisingly remained quite unknown in France. Ever since my first encounter with this piece, Aladdin has followed me, haunted me, lived through me...and luckily, the opportunity to arrange this piece for flutes finally showed up. Whether performed by an orchestra, concertband, flutes choir or by two flutes and a piano (available in Svitzer’s catalogue), I keep admiring this masterpiece. I hope that everyone, flutists and audience, will feel the energy and emotions I personally felt when listening to Aladdin. This publication was made possible by support of the Carl Nielsen Foundation."
