For Flute and Piano

This work was set for the 1998 AMEB Flute syllabus. This work is a modal work in three movements.

  • The first movement is in the Aeolian Mode and makes wide use of contrapuntal techniques.
  • The second movement is in the unusual time signature of 7/4. The work which is written in the Phrygian Mode, begins with a haunting introductory section reminiscent of Japanese flute music, and then continues in tempo.
  • The final movement, is in the Ionian Mode , known as our familiar Major scale. This work is written using a swing feel in triple time, and features improvisatory sections for both flute and piano.

You can hear a performance of this work on Margaret's IMAGES CD.
