“Two beautifully contrasting pieces!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]

These two contrasting pieces by the African-Amercan composer William Grant Still are ideal recital material. Mother and Child is poignant and romantic with sweeping phrases extending over the whole range of the flute in a glorious piece of writing. The unexpected jazz inflections in the harmony are a further treat. Gamin is altogether different. Shorter and more spritely, it again covers all registers this time with a display of finger technique in a more overtly jazz idiom. This is a great pair of pieces - don't miss them!

From the Publisher

Alexa Still’s arrangement of two movements from the Suite for Violin is a wonderful addition to the solo flute repertoire. Mother and Child is lyrical, sustained and expressive, employing the singing qualities of all of the flute’s ranges and is reminiscent of both spirituals and Debussy. Gamin is a rhythmic, humorous and jazzy piece which contrasts the previous movement and challenges the flutist technically. Recorded by Alexa Still on Koch International Classics.
