Two Snapshots Of 2017

This piece was written in 2017 and has two movements and a total duration of about 10 minutes.

The first movement, entitled Window, is the longer of the two, It is slow and scored for alto flute, viola and piano.

The second movement, Gallop, is, as its name suggests, manically fast and wild, but not without humour and some hilarity. It is scored for flute, violin and piano.

Both movements are differently scored at the special request of Gary Woolf and his trio, for whom it was written.

In it I wished to express the two polar opposites of what life can be like – either slow, dark and brooding or insanely busy and fast moving without a second to think straight.
