“This is great!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member -

Jake Heggie is a really imaginative composer and in this substantial work for flute, cello and piano he uses all the colouring of the instruments to give each of the four movements their individual character. The flowing piano accompaniment in 'Golden' underpins the gentle lines of the melody instruments, whilst 'Travel Travail' is much more angular. Busy parts for everyone and great use of glissandi combine to fully reflect the angst of a journey. 'Hummingbird' is marked 'gently swaying' and the static one-note piano part allows strange harmonies to evolve above. 'Full Circle' is full of notes and brings the work to a virtuoso close. This is an unusual piece which is contemporary but without real dissonance and it would make a really good addition to any flute and cello recital.
