Xandre for Solo Flute by Thomas Sleeper

Dedicated to the memory of Lauren Sylvester

I. Giocoso estatico

II. Lusingando, lento e espressivo

III. Veloce

Thomas Sleeper (b. 1956) is a modern, Native-American (Cherokee nation) composer and conductor. His music has been described as “hauntingly mysterious” and “richly lyrical”.

From the composer: Xandre (1982) was written for and premiered by a wonderful young flautist, Lauren Sylvester, who approached me during my early years of teaching about writing for her. Lauren was tragically lost to us in 2010.  Xandre is dedicated to her memory. Three movements explore very limited materials from many different angles – changing in our perceptions with each iteration. Memory and expectations alter our sense of things, as T.S. Eliot suggests, through time past, present and future.
