Score and Parts
Publisher: Cimarron Music Press
This little solo for flute is an homage to C.P.E., and not by any means an attempt to equal his intensity. Still, it does have its fragmentary statements and moods changes. In the middle of the first movement, Sarabande, the flute carries on a conversation with itself. Two voices are represented by alternating musical figures, which interrupt and respond to each other, as in a dialog. The Capriccio is an energetic finale with plenty of finger-twisters for the flutist, and its own odd mixture of 18th and 20th century styles.
