DREAMS FROM A BAYOU “LONG AGO, BUT NOT FORGOTTEN”

Flute and Percussion Duo   2 Scores
[18 Minutes] (EQ 05 Verederos CD)   Difficulty: V
You Tube — Garrett Menedlow, Vibes & Kat Standeferm, Flute
This work was commissioned by Payton MacDonald and Jessica Johnson who have released a superb recording of it on their CD, Verederos. The work is lyrical and often highly contrapuntal and utilizes melodic materials in unique ways based on Michael Udow’s second opera, Twelve Years a Slave. In one 12/8-6/4 cross-rhyhmic section the flutist and percussionist each wearing ankle rattles tap their feet while playing. Flute and percussion duos should not miss this major new addition to this long established instrumental combination. Check out the fabulous recording by Payton and Jessica as well!
