“This is very good!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member -
Here is an engaging four-minute piece that follows the slow-fast-slow format and is both textural and energetic. The strong opening motif is used in the fast section adding unity to the contrapuntal style of writing before the opening returns much more freely to create an atmospheric ending. Nice!

From the Publisher

Summer Rain for flute and piano SUMMER RAIN for flute and piano by Lee Heritage. Lush harmonic language and toccata-like textures invoke the shifting moods of a summer storm in this new work by Lee Heritage. A lyrical prelude opens the piece with an ascending flute melody and gentle cross rhythms in the piano hinting at the storm to come. A cloudburst interrupts this Adagio with running sixteenths in the flute punctuated by syncopated chords in the piano. A dialogue of sixteenth notes between flute and piano moves forward with optimistic energy until dissolving into a return of the prelude. This piece is an excellent choice as a recital opener.
