Two of Hearts by Leslie Uyeda
Scored for 2 Flutes
Published by Avondale Press
In score form (includes 2 scores)
Two of Hearts began life as a vocalise for soprano and flute, but soon became a duo for two flutes at the suggestion of Kathryn Cernauskas, the very gifted and knowledgeable Canadian flutist. This piece is an inconclusive conversation. Beginning tentatively, each part speaks in thoughts and ideas rather than in complete sentences. In measure 20 the language becomes more forthright, each line more fluid and independent. This section leads to more questions than answers however, and at measure 54 the two begin to retreat. There is no real conclusion.
