Hudelson, Brandy - Wild Nightingale

For solo flute. The Wild Nightingale is a solo beatbox flute work based on the French folk song "Rossignolet du bois," which means, "The Nightingale of the woods." The second line of the song, "rossignolet sauvage," which translates to "wild nightingale," was the inspiration for this solo. Wild Nightingale uses phonemes to mimic the song's French text, while trills and virtuosic passages imitate the sounds of the nightingale. The incorporation of beatboxing transforms this traditional song into a new, wilder variation. *Song text and translation included with score

Rodrigo, Joaquín - Concierto Rodrigo

For flute and piano. This delightful concerto was written for the celebrated flutist James Galway, to whom the work is dedicated. Joaquín Rodrigo uses a small orchestra with deft colouring to support his soloist and there is a definite feeling of freedom and joy in the outdoors about the work. There are three movements, which all feature Galway’s great virtuosity but the central movement bears the weight of the concerto, as it does in his Concierto de Aranjuez: an Adagio tinged with melancholy which is interrupted by an Allegro in pastoral rhythm announced by the flute and passing in turn to the various instruments of the orchestra in different keys; after a brilliant cadenza for the flute it then resolves into an Allegretto for the return to the melodic theme.

Snyder, Randall - Dream of Naksongdae

Snyder, Randall - Lyric Sonata

Combines traditional forms with neo Romantic melody and harmony. While at times paying subtle homage to Old World masters such as Prokofiev, Shostokovich and Martinu, the intriguing use of jazz inflections gives the work a distinctively American flavor. Grade 5. Duration: 15'.

Taffanel, Paul - Fantasie (On Themes from "Der Freischutz" by C.M. Von Weber)

For flute and piano. This Fantasy is one of five grandes fantaisies on famous late 19th century operas. The Freischutz fantasy may well be Taffanel's most accomplished piece. Based on what is considered the first great Romantic opera (Der Freischutz was composed by Carl Maria von Weber [1786-1826] between 1817 and 1821), its musical richness imbues the piece with an epic spirit. Far from being a mere catalog of operatic themes and variations, the fantasy builds on three arias: Agathe's "leise, leise fromme Weise" (Act II); Max's aria with cello solo (Act III, Finale) and Annchen's arriette: "Kommt ein schlanker Bursch gegangen" (Act II).
