Composed by Martha Stoddard
for two flutes or two alto flutes
Dialogues are just that. These duets explore possibilities for two flutes in conversation. The first movement is mock-serious, using a declamatory style with wide leaps and quasi-recitatives. The second is a playful odd-meter jaunt. It is followed by an eerie segment in common time. The third movement concludes with a robust, sonorous allegro.
