A Wind at Rooks Haven for Solo Flute

  • Staff Pick

Staff Pick

“Haunting music.”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]

This is a haunting piece which was originally written for flute and voice. There is no sense of a lack of text here though, as the writing fully reflects the words. It's sad, like the poem, but melancholy rather than tragic. Note bending ushers in the first tune 'played by the wind' before the music becomes more animated. Fluttering and repeated patterns of notes herald the cries of crows before the opening music returns. This is a really approachable work and one which  will add a touch of class to any recital!
