Fantasia for Flute and Piano by Marc Douyon
Fantasia for Flute and Piano by Marc Douyon is a compostion in two movements: Bluebird and Elegant Waltz. The work begins as a ballad, with a lyrical melody and jazzy figures. But soon after, it assumes the character of an improvisation with heavy chords, sultry bass, and new tempo. Meter changes are frequent and Bluebird ends as a short jazz waltz. The second movement, Elegant Waltz, is a continuation of the jazz waltz idea from the previous movement. Its music prominently features intriguing syncopated rhythms, and charming, lilting melodic phrases.
