This little suite is inspired by the winds, movements of air in
different climates and at different times of the year.
1. THERMALS: After watching hand-held kites dip and rise in graceful curves, soaring on thermals at a Kite Festival, I sought to express the dynamics of those motions in music.
2. MISTRAL: The cold wind in the North of France can be capricious, even playful.
3. SIROCCO: The warm, sultry wind over southern Europe emanates from North Africa, redolent of the scent of spices from caravans moving slowly across the desert.
— May Howlett
Instrumentation: Flute, piano.
Duration: 11 min.
Contents note: Thermals -- Mistral -- Ah! Sirocco.
The flute is an instrument that lends itself to many moods. These short pieces aim to capture several of these, from light and bouncy to sustained and seductive.
