Repertoire

ANIMO’s core repertoire is contemporary, rooted in 20 th and 21 st century music compositional traits.

We are fast creating a bank of beautiful music to challenge us and stir the soul with a wide range of influences (Folk and World music, Jazz, Latin, Abstract music and Soundscapes).

Evolving sound - new music commissions:

Sarah is keen to add the alto flute to our sound. We are particularly interested in playing new music written for alto flute and piano. Please contact us if you are interested in composing for ANIMO. We would love to hear from you! 

By no means an exhaustive list of our continually evolving repertoire, below is a list of works that we love performing.

Check out Instagram, Soundcloud, YouTube and our website for audio and video of some of those pieces.
