Commissioned by flutist Cindy Anne Broz in celebration of her granddaughter Elise, Dorff's FOR ELISE is a portrait of a delightful 3-year-old, as well as a recital piece in the slow-fast model of the French conservatory repertoire. The main body of the work is an exuberant 6/8 rondo, in which playful yet challenging episodes lead into a recurring jazz waltz.
