Reverie for Flute and Piano



This Reverie was written over quite a lengthy period and was regularly refined into its present and final form. The aim of the piece is to create a mostly restful mood but with short, lively outbursts, as if one’s dreaming has been interrupted by a sudden thought.

There are two main legato melodies, each of which is subject to some development, while the livelier sections feature much more explosive phrases and also offer clear dynamic contrast.

The flute and piano are often engaged in a sort of conversation and the main (opening) thematic idea keeps returning with slight modifications each time.
