A Night in Greenwich for Solo Bass Flute (or Alto Flute) by Mike Mower
A Night in Greenwich was commissioned by Marion Garver in January 1997. It is a work for solo bass flute which was written to highlight the tonal qualities and agility of her Kingma bass flute. It was premiered by Marion Garver at the National Flute Association convention in Chicago, August 1997.
Although originally written for bass flute, A Night in Greenwich performs equally well on both alto or concert flutes. The piece contains different moods and care should be taken to follow the tempo markings. Be sure to play the “in tempo” sections at D and H very rhythmically, with no rubato.
