Indigo Concerto for Flute and Piano (2001) by Efrain Amaya (b. 1959)
II - III. Lento - Dance
The concerto has three movements. The first movement follows a somewhat standard sonata from (exposition, development, recapitulation, and cadenza). A third theme appears before the development, but this theme appears again only in the cadenza and at the end of the last movement. The second and third movements are played without a break, and both are connected thematically to the first movement. The context of how the material appears is starkly different in each, however - the second movement is slow and introverted; the third is dance-like. Indigo is a full-bodied dark blue color. Its versatility when mixed with other colors gives it the potential for a vast variety of subtle transitions and radiations. Its warmth allows us to reach inner senses of perception.
