Three Songs for Flute and Piano
- Staff Pick
“Sad but beautiful!”
These three songs have been sensitively adapted for the flute by Alexa Still to bring out their expressive character. All three use lower colours to evoke the sadness of loss. Bayou Home is almost in the style of a Spiritual with those familiar rolling rhythms, the meandering If You Should Go captures the confusion of loss and Song for the Lonely is simply despairing. Sad music indeed but utterly beautiful.
