“Great find!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - chrish@justflutes.com

The American composer Jake Heggie is best know for his operas so he knows who to pen a good melody. These skills are brought to bear here - Soliloquy is an absolutely lovely piece which could have been written for the voice. The opening performance direction is 'like a cry' and the striking piano writing adds to the plaintive flute melody. This gives way to a cantabile tune marked 'tenderly' which is much more romantic in style. A faster section moves the piece on briefly before the da capo reprises the opening. A running time of about four and a half minutes makes this an ideal interlude is any recital programme. Do try it - you won't be disappointed!
