Idyll For Flute And Harp

Score with separate flute part (Also includes an Enharmonic Flute Part, which some players might find preferable)

The Idyll For Flute And Harp was written in May 2021 at the request of flautist Gary Woolf as a wedding present for his good friends Dietrich and Ulla Hoffmann. It was played at the couple’s wedding at the end of July 2021 by Gary and harpist Brigitte Langnickel-Kohler and it received a very warm response from the wedding-goers! There are plans for further concert performances in the coming months. As soon as I have a recording I will post it here.

Its duration is just under 6 minutes and the music is beautifully melodic with an air about it of mid-summer and pretty countryside. After just having completed The Glastry Pearl, a huge intense orchestral work, writing this gentle little Idyll was like a welcome rest and journey into a beautiful summery meadow filled with flowers and bees and warm sunshine.
