Program Notes

The Concerto for Flute (1981) was written for my good friend Martha Aarons, and was given its premiere by the University of Northern Illinois Wind Ensemble, Stephen Squires conductor with Martha Aarons as soloist.

The piece is in three traditional movements, and the flute is used in various ways to show its many moods and colors. The first movement begins slowly and lyrically with the flute, and this slow section eventually leads to a lively allegro. The second movement is slow and reflective, and at one point features the flute against a somber brass chorale. The final movement highlights the agile technique of the flute, adding a few jazz elements here and there. A reprise of the second movement chorale brings the concerto to a close.
