Stepping Out, a short work for flute accompanied by hand claps, claves or other percussion, consists of three dance movements, the first and third fast, the second slow, like a tango. The melodic material of each movement is derived from the same octatonic scale, and the tonal center remains consistent throughout the piece. Unity within each movement is achieved through the use of repetition in the accompaniment, providing rhythmic stability against a more independent flute part.
Performance duration (approx): 5'00"
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
