Remembrance
for Flute and Piano

Duration: approximately 4 minutes and 30 seconds





Remembrance was commissioned by Michelle Mowery Johnson as a Christmas gift for her aunt, Penny Rose. Ms. Rose is an active organist, pianist, flutist and choral director in Black Mountain, North Carolina. It was premiered on February 28, 2010 by Flutist Dr. Shelley Binder and Pianist Fay Adams on Dr. Binder's Faculty Recital at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, TN.




Program Notes

Remembrance is a short audience-friendly work for flute and piano in ternary form, and is ideal for use in worship services, weddings, or as a recital piece. An engaging first theme opens the work in the tonic of D major, and is followed by a brief piano passage which leads to the presentation of the expressive second theme in G major. Following an a piacere flourish for the flute and a cadence in G major, a piano interlude modulates to D minor and slows to usher in a return of the first theme in D major restated in a highly ornamented fashion by both instruments. A short coda brings the work to a quiet and elegant conclusion.
