Arcadian Melodies  Opus 34 for Flute

and for Alto Saxophone 2020

Inspired by Nature

Duration 6:30 minutes


The Australian flautist Jessica Scott had been performing in her concert programs a selection of my flute compositions.


Jessica was particularly interested in the evocative and expressive aspect of my works, which are inspired by nature.


Subsequently, Jessica approached me with a request to compose for her students.  This request was for a series of short descriptive pieces for flute and saxophone.  She further requested them to be graded starting with the simplest in style and in keys.


In a way it became a tutor whereby Jessica could encourage her students in performance to concentrate on such musical concepts as:  articulation, breath control, phrasing, imagination, correct embouchure, rhythm, intervals and so on.


To assist the students’ imagination, each short piece has a title, and is illustrated.


N.B.  This musical score is hand written and illustrated by Dawn Nettheim.
