Enchanted Preludes
By Carter
For Flute and Cello
Duration: 6 minutes
Two performace scores

This is a duet for flute and cello in which the two instruments combine their different characters and musical materials into statements of varying moods.  The title comes from a peom of Wallace Stevens: The Pure Good of Theory, "All the Preludes to Felicity," stanza No 7:

     Felicity, ah! Time is the Hooded enemy,
     The inimical music, the enchantered space
     In which the enchanted preludes have their place.

Oversized music may incur additional shipping
