Reflections
Composer: Maggi Payne
Publisher: Maggi Payne
Instrumentation: Flute
Duration: 6:48


Commissioned by the NFA for the 2004 for the High School Solo compeition, and was dedicated to Walfrid Kujala.  The title refers to the many internal reflections in the work--many phrases which echo or reflect the immediately preceding phrase.  It also occurs on a larger scale throughout the work, with varied reflections of previous phrases.  The nater of the sounds is reminiscent of reflections on the water, with slight perturbations in an otherwise glassy survace modulating the reflections.  There are occasional extended flute techniques woven into the fabric of this work, and should flow naturally and easily within the work.
