Mythic Quest by Roger C. Vogel
For flute and soprano saxophone
Includes score and parts
In mythology there are numerous stories of quests. Heroes such as Perseus, Hercules, Theseus, Jason, and others undertook missions of great importance during which they risked their lives, encountered strange creatures, and had many adventures. Mythic Quest seeks to capture the urgency, excitement, and drama of such an ancient journey. The flute and saxophone, equal partners, pursue each other with animated motives throughout the musical adventure. Mythic Quest contains three main sections: a fast vigorous opening section gives way to a more relaxed mood before the quest is concluded with a return to an increasingly resolute version of the opening ideas.
