About this track...

The iconic song, Over the Rainbow, was possibly Arlen's greatest achievement from the Wizard of oz. This simple folk-like melody is filled with emotional character due to the wide intervallic leaps and long phrases. Here, arranged by Oriss, this setting brings out both the harmonic colour and lyricism capable in a large flute ensemble.
