Serenade (Flute and Harp)
Serenade (Flute and Harp) by Daniel Dorff, Published by Theodore Presser Company.
When commissioned by the celebrated Sparx Duo, Dorff's thoughts immediately went to the French medieval style that had so captured his attention in his college days. The resulting five-movement duo reflects the music of the period and includes as the fourth movement a statement of the 14th-century love song "Helas! Je voy mon cuer a fin venir" by Solage. Dorff's neo-medieval sound is full of plaintive lyricism and driving dance rhythms. Each of the five movements may be performed individually for special occasions, as well as in recital as a 16-minute suite. For advanced performers.
