What is a Flute Quartet?
A flute quartet is a chamber music ensemble of four flutes. In addition to the traditional C flutes the ensemble is often further enhanced through the use of the alto flute, bass flute and piccolo. With these additions the regular three octave range of the flute can be expanded to five. Thus creating new opportunities for expanded harmonies and sonorities.
