Top 8 Chamber Pieces for Flute and Friends
Two Flutes and Piano
A beautiful and flowy piece that evokes a dreamy landscape for the audience, Maya challenges the duo to match their articulation styles precisely, and even includes some extended techniques!
Flute and Strings
Written for Carol Wincenc, this piece for flute and string quartet is compelling, strong, and mesmerizing. It is soloistic for the flute, yet also very balanced for the quintet. Perfect for the edgy flutist.
Flute and Winds
Challenging yet playful and quirky. Nielsen wrote this quintet for his friends and with each of their personalities and relationships in mind. An extremely fun piece to play for any woodwind quintet.
Flute and percussion
A revision of the solo piece for Paula Robison, Fluting. This piece emcompasses beauty, longing, questioning and mystery. A five minute duo that is sure to give you all the feels.
Flute and Harp
This trio is the only chamber music we have from Debussy, and we’re so grateful for it. A perfect example of impressionistic exoticism, Debussy creates lovely colors with each instrument.
Flute and Electronics
Technically, this piece can be played with tape or large flute ensemble, but we’ve also seen a solo flutist record all of the 10+ flute parts (doubling piccolo and alto flute) and play the solo part with themself (x10!) Now that is a project for a tech-saavy flutist.
Flute and Guitar
A classic in any flutist’s repertoire, but we couldn’t resist putting this piece on our list! This is our favorite version of Histoire du tango- we can’t get enough of the percussive sounds of the guitar.
Flute and Jazz Piano trio
We all know of Bolling’s Suite no.1, but Suite no. 2 is just as great. It’s fast tempo requires quick fingers, but those who dare to take it on will love this joy-ride of a piece!
