Rutter Suite Antique for Flute & Piano

Publisher – OUP (Oxford)
Duration 16 minutes.


Suite Antique by John Rutter was commissioned by Cookham Festival Society and received its first performance in 1979. Originally scored for solo flute, harpsichord and strings, it is regularly performed in the flute and piano reduction form.

The instrumentation is the same as Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No.5. The Suite is made up of six movements ranging from a ‘Bach-like Aria’ to a ‘Richard Rodgers-style Waltz’. Rutter’s own style comes forth most strongly in the final Rondeau with its characteristically forward-driving rhythms and beautiful melodic lines. Evoking an ‘antique’ spirit, each movement is based on a Baroque or Classical style.
