Compositions for Bass and Contrabass Flutes
BASS FLUTE Vivienne Olive: "..Is The Flower Of The Heart Of Man..."(1972) A solo work that is proportionally based on the time and date of the Hiroshima Attack 815681945. Many dynamic and melodic colors. Furore Editions (Kassel) Frank Michael Beyer: Echo (1985) Solo work set in four movements, with outer movements based around chorale like quarter tone chants. Good for a spacial setting. Third movement set in a duo score for great dramatic and dynamic effect of compund like melodic material. Challenging to pull-off in performance. Bote & Bock (Berlin) Daniel Kessner: Priere et Scherzo (2000) A challenging and exciting six minute composition for Bass Flute and Piano. Includes some air/breath sounds and fluid scale passages. Perfect on any recital program, and has some of those familiar French overtones, with of course, an American twist. Published by Theodore Front Musical Literature http://www.csun.edu/~vcoao04c/daniel.html Daniel Kessner: Seven Studies In Melodic Expression (1991) A fantastic set of melodic explorations for the Low Flutes, that expand the concepts and control of musical expressions. All etudes are excellent individual performance pieces. Publisher: Theodore Front Music Dominik Karski: Glimmer (Duo for Alto and Bass Flute) A sonic treat, with pages of quarter tone clashes, pitch glissandi, timbral trills and rich harmonic overtone patterns. A neat well written manuscript, but a challenge to play accurrate. http://www.amcoz.com.au/opac/name.aspx?id=4374 CONTRABASS FLUTE Felix Werder: Opening! (1987) Solo composition for Contrabass flute (in G), but a virtuosic challenge for C Contrabass flute. Some demanding rhythmic passages with wide intervalic leaps. Exciting to play and fun to listen to. Published through Australian Music Center.
