Six Sketches

http://www.fortonmusic.co.uk/product/six-sketches/Click to see and hear the score.I wrote these pieces towards the end of summer 2014 at the request of various flautist colleagues who were telling me I should get back to writing for flute and piano. Five of the six pieces are dedicated to musician colleagues; all flautists except Walter the percussionist. The sixth is to myself, perhaps a portait of the artist as a young boy. These compositions, however, are not really meant to be portaits, just pieces dedicated to people I work with, and to some extent inspired by how I see them, so I have called them Sketches. The Sketches offer short expositions of themes which I hope will be enjoyable to play and to listen to. They offer some technical challenges for the flautist but are mostly in a ‘medium difficulty’ range, in attractive jazz/pop styles.

I’m very happy to be appearing (workshop and concert) at the Festival of the German Flute Society this March in Munich.

Thanks to Yamaha for helping to make this possible.
