Bethena (Flute Choir)
Bethena (Flute Choir) By Scott Joplin, Arranged by David Bailey, Published By Falls House Press.
Instrumentation: Piccolo, 2 C Flutes, Alto Flute, Bass Flute. This is a great ragtime addition to any library. It is a waltz, so the square rhythm of the march-based rags is rounded and smoothed by the waltz feeling, yet the characteristic syncopation permeates the music. Bethena is very happy and lively in character, and provides a bright change of pace for any concert, "serious" or pops. Enjoy it.
