“Heart-breaking.”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]

This lovely duet starts with a poignant melody, becomes ever more passionate before closing as it began. From a practical angle the flutes are in rhythmic unison and close harmony throughout making it straightforward to perform. Musically it will break your heart.

From the Publisher

This paraphrase on Xenia for two flutes and piano is based on the melody of a song by Vladimir Budnik, a Belarusian composer who died early. The melody is very close to Belarusian folk song and is distinguished by unearthly beauty, lyricism and sadness. In the original song, the dressmaker girl Xenia sews a wedding dress for a bride for many days and cries because her fiancé was taken away by the sea, and she will never wear such a dress. My Xenia is dedicated to a wonderful flute duet from Kyiv – Heaven.
