Ain Karim Fantaisie for Flute and Organ by Daniel Roth
Instrumentation: Flute and Organ
Includes organ score and flute part
Preface: This piece “brings out the contrast between the ‘little’ flute and the ‘monumental’ organ, with reference to the lines from the Magnificat: ‘He hath put down the mighty from their seat and hath exalted the humble and meek’. The title of the piece can be explained as follows. ‘Ain Karim’ is the name of the place near Jerusalem where Mary, mother of Jesus, probably visited her cousin Elisabeth and spoke the words of the Magnificat.” – Daniel Roth
Daniel Roth (born in 1942) studied organ with Marie-Claire Alain and composition with Maurice Duruflé. He is internationally famous as an organ virtuoso and teaches at the Musikhochschule in Frankfurt/Main.
