Recital: Works of Kay, Hoover, Acosta, Lopez
Dr. Charlotte Daniel
A program of engaging repertoire, with a brief spoken introduction to share background information on both the composer and the context, style, and challenges of the piece. Unaccompanied repertoire offers so many benefits to performers of all levels, and the potential for adding more breadth to our solo flute repertory is an exciting possibility for both performers and audiences. I have found these works to be wonderful inclusions in the applied studio, in addition to the traditional staples of the solo flute repertoire.
Prelude for Unaccompanied Flute (1943) Ulysses Kay (1917-1995)
Kokopeli (1991) Katherine Hoover (1937-2018)
Solo de Pajarillo (1992) Omar Acosta (b.1964)
Mångata - Reflejos de la luna en el Jerte (2018). Francisco López
