“Very effective music from Katherine Hoover!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]
If you are looking for something unusual to play with piano these effective pieces from Katherine Hoover would certainly be a good place to look. All five movements have a different feel. For drama try A Haida with its bold opening or Clown mask for its unpredictability, Hulchoi can supply cascades of notes, the African Death mask is eerie, and the last two can be anything you like! Each one of these would easily stand alone and pairs of contrasting movements would work very well. Effective and great to play!

From the Publisher

When asked to write a piece for the National Flute Convention in Phoenix, I envisioned a piece comprising several short movements. The idea of MASKS appealed to me, for a mask generally makes an impression quickly; its affect clear at a glance.

I have collected several masks over the years, and looked at many more in museums and art books of various kinds. Three of these movements reflect particular masks that I have seen, one is a generic type, and two are waiting to be constructed.

The three specific masks are: I A Haida (Northwest Native American) mask, of commanding presence; II a Huichol (Mexican Native) Jaguar mask, completely beaded with intricate flower patterns; and III, an African American death mask of great calmness. IV is a clown mask, and the last two are left entirely to your imagination.

Dedicated to Albert Cooper
