The Incredible Flutist


Walter Piston, composer

Frank Erickson, arranger

The Incredible Flutist was first performed in 1938 with Arthur Fiedler conducting the Jan Veen Dancers and the Boston Pops Orchestra. Included in the Concord Band’s performance are six sections of the original eleven in the suite. The music is about a circus and a flutist who could charm not only snakes but also people. The transcription for band is by Frank Erickson.
