Joplin, S. - The Strenuous Life - for flute quintet
A Ragtime Two Step
This is a wonderfully written dance with intricate twisting tunes that are really fun to play. The melodies call and answer between the parts, with the big flutes getting a chance to show they can do more than oom-pah in the middle section! A rousing, fun piece for quintet or choir.
