Product details

Romance for Flute and Orchestra was commissioned by Ars Musica Australis in 2002 for performance by the renowned flautist Jane Rutter and the Sydney Youth Orchestra under chief conductor Thomas Woods. The first performance was at the Riverside Theatre, Parramatta on May 31, 2003.
The work is in one continuous movement, based on three chords which appealed to me in a book of jazz piano studies.
There are three contrasting sections, each based on one of these chords: A flat, B flat and E flat. The second and third chords are the same, but rise by a semitone. The whole piece concludes with
a recapitulation of ideas heard in the first three sections.

Romance is intended to be as the title suggests - a work that is appealing and not too heavy.
Romance for Flute and Orchestra is dedicated to Canberra, one of my favourite cities, which was besieged with overpowering bushfires just as I was completing this piece.
It is also dedicated to the cosmic explorations and discoveries carried out at Mount Stromlo and its historic observatory, which was destroyed by the fires on Saturday January 18, 2003. It is being rebuilt at the time of publication of this work.
