Serenade Op.71 #3
Instrumentation: Flute and Guitar
A Swiss composer, he was extremely influential in the 20th century. He believed that it was the composers mission to go out on a limb to create and discover new modes of expression by combining the old ones, but never following already set musical fashions. In this piece written around 1945, the three movements explore the range of the flute and guitar. The movements are Praeludium and Lied, Romanze and March.
