Griffes’ Poem remains unique in that it demands primarily lyrical rather than technical virtuosity from the performer. The atmospheric opening serves as a refrain throughout this single-movement work, separated by episodes of lush chromatic language, polymetric dance, and energized fillagre.
Dating from his years of exile, the Sonata-Idyll, Medtner’s fourteenth and final piano Sonata, is notable for its eloquent themes that linger long in the memory. I’m thrilled to showcase Kevin’s talents in this work for solo piano.
The flute Sonata in C Major by JS Bach is a favorite of mine though there is controversy over the authenticity of attributing the composition to JS Bach.
A piece as extensive as Widor’s Suite was unusual for the era and makes it a treasure in the repertoire. The character of the Suite puts it far ahead of the usual salon genre. Not only is the full range of the flute employed, but the instruments charm and virtuosity are enhanced with drama.
