Something about Eve
Composed by Mathias Ruegg (2008)
For flute and piano
Published by Doblinger

This piece was inspired by the film “All About Eve” by director Joseph L. Mankiewic, a very black satire of theater intrigue in which Bette Davis delivers a tour de force performance as a diva.  A short appearance of the young Marilyn Monroe portraying a young actress who, with her lack of talent, is turned down with the suggestion that she should try her luck in TV gives the 1950 film, which had won several Oscars in 1951, an additional, if retrospective, ironic touch.

As the composer's longtime partner is also called Eva, a professional flutist, this piece from 2008 is called “Something about Eve.”  It starts out with a simple E minorcadence which is gradually widened and constantly reappears in harmonically transformed form, alternating with highly rhythmically sections in double time.  There is only one tempo which is sometimes relieved by free rubato sections.  Both piano and flute should sound very “songlike.”
