My better, smarter and more talented half is giving a flute recital at Tabor College on September 26th at 3PM. Included in her repertoire is two of my newest works, where she will be accompanied on harp by our daughter! (This is peak proud hubby and proud dad stuff right here!)
Be Thou My Vision, for flute and harp, was written as a gift for Sarah, she requested this shortly after our daughter started learning harp, and I finally made good on the promise. :D
Simple Soliloquy, also for flute and harp, is the first concert chamber work I've written that includes harp, and it is a different piece for me; I wouldn't call it "contrapuntal," but the two parts are very independent of each other. The piece creates a mood, or atmosphere, that represents a mood of being lost in one's own thoughts.
If you're in central Kansas on the 26th, we'd love to see you at the recital! It is free, and in Richert Auditorium, in the Flaming Center for the Arts at Tabor College.
