Product details

This piece was composed at the request of Arved Kurtz, a violinist on the staff of the Elder Conservatorium in Adelaide, shortly after the composer returned from studies in
London. The first performance was given by Kurtz in the Adelaide Town Hall on 3rd June 1936.
Miriam Hyde adapted Dryad's Dance for flute in 1957.

Composer's Note:
A dryad, mentioned in English poetry, is a mythical being, a nymph inhabiting trees. There is an element of fantasy about this piece, with lively semiquaver movement for the solo instrument, while the accompaniment features off-beat chords and piquant staccato quavers, though occasionally imitating the initial semiquaver theme
