Travelogue for Flute Quartet by Elizabeth Brown (1995)
Revised in 2011
Includes score and parts
Duration: about 8:00

Travelogue was inspiried by family trips from my childhood, riding with my brothers in the back seat of our car, rolling through the Alabama countryside. We were exhilarated with the movement and the new scenery, anticipating our arrival, impatient with delays - and sometimes homesick/ The flute language includes microtonal trills and progressions, wheezy overblown tremelos, and a Doppler efffect of falling pitch (to imitate cars passing in the other direction). Travelogue was written in New York City for my friends and colleagues in Flute Force, and finished on Christmas Day, 1995. - Elizabeth Brown
