Chroma for Flute or Alto Flute and Cello by Cherise D. Leiter
I. Spanish Red (Alto Flute and Cello)
II. Aspen Green/Aspen Gold (C Flute and Cello)
III. Blue Mountain Sky Stream (C Flute and Cello)
Chroma, a three movement work for flute and cello, was commissioned by Dr. Michelle Stanley. Each movement represents one if the beautiful colors found in the Colorado landscape: “Spanish Red” for our lovely red rocks (which is the origin of the state name), “Aspen Green/Aspen Gold” for the incessant, shimmering movement of the aspen leaves, and “Blue Mountain Sky Stream” for our vast sky and rushing waters.
