On bright air / Jane Stanley.

Library shelf no. 788.32/STA 3 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

On Bright Air is a virtuosic solo for flute. The gestures making up the lines (contours and rhythmic activity) are inspired by the imagined motion of a leaf or other light object being pushed around in a breeze, sometimes gently, at other times more vigorously. An introspective middle section, punctuated by rests, contrasts with the more mobile outer sections.
