Divertimento for Flute and Viola by Paul Hayden
This piece was written for flutist Katherine Kemler and violist Matthew Daline. The first movement, Canray's Dream, is the composer's homage to the great Louisiana Creole fiddler, Canray Fontenot (1922-1995). The second movement, Molto Tranquillo, is a slow, lyrical movement that uses flute and viola harmonics in the outer sections. The finale, Cajun Riviera, make use of some Cajun fiddling techniques along with clashing polyrhythms between the two instruments.
