Five Easy Pieces, Op56 for flute and piano by Joachim AndersenEdited by Kyle DzapoOp56 #1 - Im Herbst (Autumn)Op56 #2 - Die Blumen (The Flowers)Op56 #3 - Unterm Balkon (Under the Balcony)Op56 #4 - Abendlied (Evening Song)Op56 #5 - Aus vergangenen Zeiten (From Bygone Days)The Opus 56 pieces include Im Herbst (Autumn) and Abendlied (Evening Song), two of Andersen's most beautifully simple compositions. In Die Blumen (The Flowers), Andersen introduces a fuller contrapuntal texture. Unterm Balkon (Under the Balcony) differs in several ways from the other pieces in this collection. Andersen departs from the usual ternary form and here creates a through-composed piece. Andersen introduces several archaic elements in Aus vergangenen Zeiten (From Bygone Days) to suggest the music of the former eras.
