Aria for Flute (1957) composed by Robert F. Baksa
Written for Flute and Piano
Includes score and parts
Revised 2000 
Duration. 3:30

The composition follows the practice of the classic Italian opera of adding embellishments to both the solo part and to the accompaniment on the second statement of the theme.  In Aria, Mr. Baksa has made those embellishments an integral part of the piece rather than leave them to the discretion of the performers.
