$15.00

Run time: approx. 5′. Flute range: C4-Ab6. At the end of my sophomore year of college, I was challenged to write a piece for flute and piano using only nine notes of the chromatic scale. Somehow, I still really like the piece I wrote as a result.

Description

At the end of my sophomore year of college, I was challenged to write a piece for flute and piano using only nine notes of the chromatic scale. I was further instructed to draw inspiration from Gerhard Richter’s painting Canaletto. By the end of the compositional process, Fade to Black reflected the dueling calm and chaos I saw in the piece, using only the pitches C through G-sharp—A, B-flat, and B never appear. Though it started as an academic exercise, it quickly became one of my favorite pieces I’ve ever composed.

Run time: approx. 5′. Flute range: C4-Ab6.
