Summer Night for Flute, Horn and Strings
- Interesting, worth a look
From the Publisher
Summer Night was completed in July, 1985, and premiered by the New York Concerto Orchestra outdoors in Lincoln Center the following September. It was published by Theodore Presser, with a piano reduction, in 1986. The flute and horn are a rather mismatched pair in many ways. To let their individual qualities sound, I began with a short soliloquy for each. This is followed by a slow dance which grows out of the soliloquies, and then a lively one, as the instruments (or characters, or thoughts) meet and interact.
Performance duration (approx): 7'00"
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
