Kokopelli (Flute Choir)
Music for Flute Ensemble With Percussion
Score and Part(s)
Performing Ensemble: Flute Ensemble
Instrumentation: 5 Flutes (2 dbl. Piccolo), 2 Alto Flutes, 1 Bass Flute, Percussion (Flutes double on percussion: Drum (bongo), Rattle, Shaker, Tambourine, Triangle). While Raines made no attempt to write music of a Native American nature, there is no escaping the influence. Perhaps better described as a distillation of Native American music through the mind of the composer, Kokopelli follows the eons-long tradition of combining flutes and percussion, here having the flutists play simple percussion parts on easily accessible instruments. For advanced performers.
