"Expresso" is a lively piece that is short but sweet. It was originally composed for a woodwing quintet in 1999, but has been reworked multiple times before reaching its current setting. The name comes from a play on the words "Espresso" and "Express". The idea came to me as after watching the movement of someone's coffee in their cup one day as it spun around.
Keeping a solid tempo is of utmost importance to the work. As a group becomes more comfortable, they can certainly push the tempo faster and faster. The point at which it is the clearest and the fastest is the perfect tempo; don't sacrifice clarity for speed or vice versa.
This setting of "Expresso" is set for Expandable Flute Choir. There are a total of eight parts. Only Flutes 1 through 4 are required. The Piccolo, 5th Flute, Alto Flute, and Bass Flute parts are completely optional and can be added in any order.
