Program Notes

This concert piece for flute soloist and band is divided into three sections. A fast opening theme provides the soloist with a rhythmic melody that evolves into a slower and more expressive middle section. Here too the band has ample opportunity to display a full and warm sensitivity with the music. This section concludes with a brief cadenza for solo flute supported by sustained woodwind harmony. The final section is quick and light-hearted, becoming an energetic finale to this original composition.

- Program Note from the score


This is a truly fascinating work for solo flute with band. Symphonic in nature, the band accompaniment displays a multitude of colors and textures underneath the solo, which is at times playful, somewhat contemporary, and occasionally dark and warm.
