Attitudes (Three Hormonal Duets) for Two Alto Flutes or Flutes [Playing score]
- Highly recommended
From the Publisher
"Three Hormonal Duets" for two alto flutes or two flutes by Jon Jeffrey Grier. These challenging and enjoyable duets were finalists in rarescale's 10th Anniversary Composition Competition in 2013.
Having been for many years a teacher of teenagers and the parent of a couple more, I have tried here to capture three of the many quintessential states of the teenage psche. In quieter moments - ie when not having to deal with them - I find these things amusing. It is remarkable that we can survive our teenage years and those of our children. These pieces should be rendered with the sort of wry humour that is most possible later on, looking back at those awkward episodes.
