The main purpose of this dissertation is to discover
and examine, from a composer's point of view, the
characteristics and idiosyncrasies of ensembles comprised of
only flutes. A secondary and complementary purpose is to
study the flute ensemble repertory, as defined by a survey
undertaken for this task.
In fulfilment of the aforementioned primary purpose,
eleven recent pieces have been selected for detailed study.
These are first examined separately, and then compared,
with reference to their use of specific musical elements.
Also examined, are three flute ensemble compositions by
the present writer, one of which was composed in parallel
with this dissertation.
A number of musical examples, referred to in the text
in relation to both categories of works studied, are
included immediately following the appendices.
Appendix One contains a list of the works on which my
examination of the flute ensemble repertoire is based.
Appendix Two briefly examines the various sizes of flutes
which may be encountered within this repertoire.
